Canada’s seniors: Spoiled or worthy of getting something back after a lifetime of paying into the system?

That question was up for debate on Oct. 25, 2016 at another entry in the Great Canadian Debates. Margaret Wente and Susan Eng debated the motion “Canada must stop coddling its spoiled seniors” at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.

Globe and Mail columnist Margaret Wente argued in favour.

Susan Eng, a lawyer and former executive vice-president of the Canadian Association of Retired Persons, argued against.

The two debaters authored competing op-eds for the Globe and Mail bolstering their positions. MLI Great Canadian Debate: "Canada must stop coddling its spoiled seniors"
