This morning, Federal Retirees President Jean-Guy Soulière attended the Economic Club of Canada’s breakfast to hear remarks from Finance Minister Bill Morneau following the release of the 2018 Federal Budget. As noted in our budget analysis, this year’s edition has lots of shiny goodies, like merchandise crammed into a store display case. And like the nice things in the display case, not everything is exactly as shown.
To better clarify the seemingly piecemeal measures in the budget that relate to seniors and retirees, Federal Retirees hoped to ask the Finance Minister three questions. While questions were collected from attendees prior to the event, those questions were not asked.
Nevertheless, Federal Retirees persist. These questions are important and need to be answered, and we will ask them anyway.
