I am a constituent in your riding and I am calling on you to take action to protect pensioners in the event of corporate bankruptcy.
Now is the time to give corporate defined benefit pension plans super-priority status in the event of bankruptcy or insolvency. And bring pension protections in Canada in line with other jurisdictions, such as the US and the UK.
Without protections, corporate pensioners in Canada can work their whole lives only to face poverty in retirement because our laws don’t protect them. That’s not fair.
The Federal Government has promised movement on pensions, but so far the silence is deafening. It’s time for action. I’m calling on you to stand up for pensioners now.
