If you’re not a fan of the proposed Ontario pension plan and would like to see the idea die, you might have to vote Liberal in the federal election!
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has hinted that she will cancel the creation of a pension plan for the province if Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is crowned Canada’s next prime minister.
Why would she change direction on this plan?
Wynne claims that if Trudeau wins on October 19, and is willing to improve benefits paid out by the Canada Pension Plan (something that Stephen Harper’s Conservatives have not done), she’ll spare Ontario from the OPP (no, not the police force).
Trudeau has pledged to expand the CPP and drop Old Age Security eligibility back to 65 from 67.
So, will this announcement change the way you vote on Monday?
