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.

  1. Few people are aware of this but, due to the passing of Bill C-124 third session, 34th Parliament, 40-41-42 in 1991-1992-1993 in order to pay off the national debt the government might be required, and now has legislation in place, to confiscate the pensions, RRSPs, investments, property and all other tangible assets of the people. Looks like it is starting to be utilized.

    1. Pay off the national debt that was created by giving the banks $65 billion?

    1. Yeah I saw that in the paper today. I didn't really understand it. The call ended up confusing voters. What was the purpose of the call? To discourage people from voting?
