Weekend Video: Defend Our Pensions!

On Wednesday October 8, a rally to defend workplace pensions and expand CPP benefits was held in Toronto shortly before a Bay Street pensions summit of think tanks, business schools and major financial players such as Sun Life. The so-called “Second National Summit on Pension Reform” did not include any retiree organizations or their representatives.

Below are the speeches at the rally from Jean-Claude Parrot, former president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, Hassan Yussuff, president of the CLC, Herb John, president of the National Pensioners Federation, and Jo-Ann Hannah, Unifor Director of Pensions and Benefits.
