Corporate think-tanks, such as the C.D. Howe Institute and the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, continue to apply pressure to the Harper government to attack public sector pensions in order to cut the deficit. They are doing this to divert attention away from the real pension issue: The need for public-pension reform that will provide retirement security for all.

We must fight against any attack on public services and defined-benefit pension plans. We must bring the focus back to the real issue: Retirement security for everyone!
