Apparently, Harper and his cronies are looking at changing the Canada Pension Plan. If they want to make a real change, it should be voluntary, and it should remove the defined benefit provision. Make it operate like any private (non-union) pension plan – you put in your money, they invest it, and you withdraw your money when you retire. If it is successful, people will use it; if not, they will invest elsewhere.
The current ponzi scheme is unsustainable and unconscionable.
