CFIB’s report on public pensions ‘mean-spirited’

Editor’s note: The following is an open letter to Catherine Swift, president of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), on a report it issued in January entitled Canada’s Pension Predicament: The Widening Gap Between Public and Private Sector Retirement Trends and Pension Plans

What a surprise. Another mean-spirited and economically illiterate attack on the public sector, one in a series from the CFIB, this time an attack on the pension plans of public-sector employees.
