The Pension Coalition wishes to thank MLA’s Jack Carr (PC New Maryland – Sunbury West), Craig Leonard (PC Fredericton – Lincoln) and Bill Fraser (L Miramichi – Bay du Vin) for attending the entire 3 hour pension information session in Fredericton April 17th. We appreciate your interest. Also wish to thank other MLAs who were able to attend some of that session (Madeline Dube, Troy Lifford, Danny Soucy).
Dear Ms Prendergast,
Thank you for copying me on your letter. I share your concerns over the Conservatives' apparently cavalier attitude towards contracts. While I fully support efforts to get our finances in balance and to make our spending sustainable in the long term that cannot be done by undermining our relationship with anyone, individual or corporation, with whom the government has a contractual relationship.
(Press Release by Coalition today)
Even in Premier Alward’s own riding, retirees are banding together to resist cutbacks to their pensions.
Pension Coalition NB held meetings last week in Woodstock and Edmundston. In total, 400 pensioners came out in these areas to hear about planned changes to their pensions. This is in addition to the 750 new members who registered with the Coalition last week, following meetings in the greater Saint John and Moncton areas.
