Another Pension Lie
The passionate assault on Canadian Pensions is as disturbing as the outrageous propaganda used to drive it. The latest absurdity the Harper government is using to rationalize the deregulation of pensions and raising the age of retirement is to protect the youth from having to support an aging generation. That is absurd.
One day, all the young people will retire. When you raise the age of retirement you are telling them everyone else was allowed to retire at age 65 but you're not. We've all been paying into the pension all our working life. Now Harper wants to take that away and give it to the banks. Well he already gave it to the banks. Now he wants to use our pensions to pay for that dasterdly deed. Young people will pay the price of not having a pension any more thanks to the Harper Government.
