Summary of remarks - Murray Gold, senior partner, Koskie Minsky
Please find below a summary of remarks given by Murray Gold, senior partner at Koskie Minsky, at a recent meeting of the National Association of Federal Retirees this past June.
Mr. Gold highlights the seriousness of the actions of the New Brunswick Government on provincial retirees. It's shameful for our New Brunswick governments to be singled out this way and to think that this is true leadership. Most other jurisdictions have proceeded with changes but on a true go forward basis. Even a Cabinet minister in the Harper Government recognizes accrued benefits and contract law.
