Workers not to blame for Quebec pension problem: Don Pittis
(Note: This is a CBC story of some length. Here is the beginning, and the link is posted after for the full story.)
A deal's a deal, right? Well, not when it comes to the province of Quebec and the pensions of its municipal employees.

Quebec is pulling a Detroit. About a year ago, I pointed out that the shattered dreams of Detroit pensioners should be a warning to the rest of us. But unlike Detroit, Quebec is trying to snatch back promised pension money by fiat through its proposed Bill 3 pension reform legislation, without the inconvenient legal process of bankruptcy.
