On June 12, the Council of Canadians will be participating in an action outside the federal finance minister's office to call for an expansion of the Canada Pension Plan. This protest comes just prior to a finance ministers meeting where major decisions will be made about the CPP.
CUPE notes, "The CPP expansion crew will be donning hard hats and bringing construction gear to the Minister of Finance office to show how easy it is to build the CPP. The group is calling for Finance Minister Jim Flaherty to support the call to expand the CPP so all Canadian workers can have a secure retirement. Bring your work gloves and your tool kit, and join us for this fun and meaningful action." The action takes place on June 12 at 3 pm at 140 O'Connor Street at the Ministry of Finance office.
