Bill C-228



Dear Ottawa and NE Bell Pensioners

On behalf of Mike Powell and the Canadian Federation of Pensioners (CFP) of which BPG is a member.

I am writing to request your help with our Senate outreach campaign in support of Bill C-228.

As you know, on November 23, Parliament voted unanimously to support Bill C-228. This legislation will protect millions of Canadian seniors and their families who rely on defined benefit pensions for their financial security in retirement.

This Bill is now before the Senate. Your urgent action is needed to ensure it passes the Senate and receives Royal Assent.

Please email your membership as soon as possible. We need everyone to email the Senate using this link and express their support for Bill C-228. It is critical that we keep up the pressure to get this Bill across the finish line.

Thanks to your support, pension protection for millions of vulnerable Canadian seniors is within reach.

Thank You

Micheal Powell

President, Canadian Federation of Pentioners



Le 23 novembre, le Parlement a voté à l'unanimité en faveur du projet de loi C-228. Cette loi protégera des millions d'aînés canadiens et leurs familles qui comptent sur des régimes de retraite à prestations déterminées pour leur sécurité financière à la retraite.

Ce projet de loi est maintenant devant le Sénat. Nous avons besoin de votre aide pour nous assurer qu'il passe au Sénat et reçoive la sanction royale.

Veuillez cliquer ici pour envoyer un courriel au Sénat et exprimer votre appui au projet de loi C-228.

La protection des retraités à prestations déterminées se fait attendre depuis longtemps. Les lois fédérales sur l'insolvabilité et les pensions favorisent actuellement la protection des grandes banques et le versement de primes aux dirigeants plutôt que la protection financière des retraités. Ceci est inacceptable et doit être corrigé.

En cette période des Fêtes, veuillez envoyer un courriel et exigez du Sénat l’appui au projet de loi C-228. Ensemble, nous pouvons apporter la tranquillité d'esprit à des millions de retraités à prestations déterminées partout au Canada.

Grâce à votre soutien, la protection des pensions de millions d'aînés canadiens vulnérables est à portée de main.
