Finance Minister Bill Morneau
The Council of Canadians joins with numerous allies to demand that Bill C-27 be withdrawn by the Trudeau government.
In this open letter to federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Canadian Labour Congress president Hassan Yussuff writes, "I am writing on behalf of Canada’s unions to urge you to abandon Bill C-27, An Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985, which represents a dangerous and immediate attack on future and current retirees and Defined Benefit pension plans in the federal private sector and Crown corporations."
Yussuff highlights, "C-27 was introduced without notice or consultation with Canadians, pensioners, or unions and proposes measures that directly contradict election promises to improve retirement security for Canadians. If enacted, it will have negative implications for private and public-sector DB plans in every jurisdiction in Canada."
