Organized labour wants to expand the Canada Pension Plan to provide a better retirement for people. Private pensions are having problems, the CPP can provide a successful alternative as long as we are careful about how it is managed. We all know about the CPP, but maybe not as much as we think; Stan Dzbik of the Victoria Labour Council fills us in, along with Ken Georgetti of the Canadian Labour Congress, Mike Eso of the VLC, Dr. Michael Prince UVIC Professor of Social Policy, BC Forum president Gerry Edwards and Hassan Yussuf, secretary-treasurer of the Canadian Labour Congress.
An important issue that we'd better be keeping our eye on.
