This Thursday, August 5, the provincial premiers will be meeting in Winnipeg. Canada's labour federations will also be in town, and there will be a demo to demand improvements to Canada's pension system. Here's the info from the Manitoba Federation of Labour.
Rally For Public Pensions August 5
Provincial premiers from across Canada will be meeting in Winnipeg during the week of August 2. The presidents of Federations of Labour from across the country will also be in Winnipeg for meetings during that time.

The Manitoba Federation of Labour, our sister Federations from across Canada, the Canadian Labour Congress and Manitoba's Labour Councils and Labour Coordinating Committees think it will be a great time to speak out on the importance of improving Canada's public pensions.

A rally for public pensions will be in front of the Hotel Fort Garry, 222 Broadway, to deliver the message of the need for a sound public pension policy at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 5.

Anyone concerned about the effectiveness of the Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement programs is urged to participate in this rally. Retirement should not be impoverishment. When the Premiers come to town make sure you're there too!!!
