In 2004 prior to the election, the Conservatives accused Paul Martin of having a secret agenda. They suggested that Martin and the Liberals were considering raising the OAS from 65 to 67.
The release stated, "Paul Martin’s real agenda for seniors is so shocking it took an Access to Information request to force it into the light of day."
What is ironic here is that the Conservatives went after the Liberals for looking at raising the entitlement age from 65 to 67, yet here we are with the same Conservatives looking at actually doing it. They did not campaign or tell anyone in the public that they were looking at this.
Secret agendas, be they Conservative or Liberal, make for undemocratic government.
