The Public Service Alliance of Canada is pleased that Canada will honour a leading civil rights activist by featuring Viola Desmond on the new $10 bill. CBC described Desmond’s legacy this way:
In 1946, nine years before Rosa Parks historic bus ride in the U.S., Viola Desmond sat in a section of a Nova Scotia movie theatre that was reserved for white people, rather than the designated area for black people upstairs. A police officer arrested her and she spent the night in jail charged with not paying a tax of three cents for a downstairs ticket.

Sisters and Brothers,
The Liberal government recently introduced Bill C-27, An Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985. This bill will allow for the creation of target benefit pension plans and is an attack on retirement security. The Conservatives threatened this type of legislation, but now the Liberal government is actually pursuing it.
