  • Expected can be our continued slide into our Greecian urn, with expense exceeding revenue. Social justice logic will prevail until….merit measures are invoked…from without(?).

  • The feds haven’t raised the retirement age to 65 for new hires yet. They have said, ‘Consultations will take place with the pension advisory committees which include representation from employees, retirees and member representatives from the public service, Canadian Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police on the changes proposed.’
    It will be interesting to see if these consultations include changes to the provision for early retirement at age 55 with 30 years of service. The Budget said nothing about that possibility. It was very short on details.
