Why politicians are listening

Graph - Voter Turnout in Ontario by Age Group - Federal Election 2011

This graph shows one of the reasons why pensions are being given so much attention today.  2/3 of the voting population is approaching retirement age or already retired.  With that kind of demographic, you can rest assured politicians are listening, so now is the time to start pointing out what is wrong with the system today.  The ONPA will continue to develop presentations that demonstrate the shortfalls of some pension plans and ways those problems can be resolved in a fair manner.  Specifically, we will continue to seek more information regarding the status of our own plan and provide input to the governance of it.

Your questions and/or input is welcome.

Thanks.

Phil Koning

Chair ONPA
