Five UCP cabinet ministers have now spoken to the RCMP as they investigate allegations of criminal wrongdoing in connection with the party’s 2017 leadership race.
On Monday, July 15, a spokesperson for Minister of Seniors and Housing Josephine Pon confirmed to Global News that the RCMP “spoke briefly” with Pon about the matter, but “assured her that she was not under investigation.”
Until now, AISH recipients had to submit a separate application for provincial seniors benefits. This is unnecessary red tape since the government already has the required information.
Auto-enrolment will eliminate an unnecessary application process and ensure AISH recipients will not miss out on provincial financial assistance they may be eligible for as they reach age 65.
