Harper government is hurting the worker again

"And now, the Harper government is engaging in a fresh frontal assault on the retirement incomes of beleagured Canadian workers.
In what amounts to a radical overhaul, it announced last April that it intends to change long-standing legislation governing workplace pensions in ways that would allow employers (private sector and Crown corporations) to walk away from pension commitments they made to employees, even after those employees have paid into the plans throughout their working years.

None of this has received much attention, although it could affect hundreds of thousands of workers."
