NDP STANDS UP FOR WORKERS AND RETIREES
OTTAWA - Today, NDP MP Scott Duvall (Hamilton Mountain) stood up in Question Period to hold the Liberal government to account for the lack of protection for pensions in the case of bankruptcy or insolvency.
"Workers and retirees in this country deserve better. Why is this government refusing to stand up for Canadian workers and retirees, and their pensions, " asked Duvall.
Last Fall, Duvall introduced a Bill in the House of Commons to end pension theft in Canada and to protect the pensions workers and retirees have earned.
"18 000 Sears retirees just lost a third of their pension and that could happen again to others if the law is not changed," stressed Duvall.
