It’s so odd that we have to legislate things that should be a given or simply reinforce what should be laws. Company A stiffs their employees and essentially gets off the hook with all of their executives in the clear. Bad Desperate Man holds up a Cab and ends up in prison.
I like Jack Layton; I like this proposal. I just don’t like that we live in a society that has to force this kind of law into place. Hopefully it will make it through and protect Canadians at a time of life when they need the protection the most.
L I N K “The self-sustaining program would be funded by employer contributions and guarantee pensioners $2,500 per month in the event their plan is wound up.
Mr. Layton called for the Conservative government to double the Canada Pension Plan benefit to $1817 a month from $908, which several seniors’ groups have been lobbying for in recent years.
The proposals come one day after retired employees of the bankrupt telecom giant Nortel held a demonstration on Parliament Hill.
When companies go under they are allowed to wind up their pension plans. There is an estimated $1.8-billion shortfall in the Nortel plan.”
I still say we should do away with Canada Pension; disability; welfare, employment insurance and all of the infrastructure that goes with that and simply have a guaranteed minimum income in Canada. If you want to help local economies, reduce crime, increase education, quality of life, and productivity, remove the stigma of poverty and give people the opportunity to make Canada grow.
So what do you think of Mr. Layton’s proposal Cornwall?
