I am writing to express my utmost disappointment with this Progressive Conservative government with regard to the news that has been recently announced regarding cuts to the provincial pension plan.
I voted, as did many others, for this PC government because we believed in Kathy Dunderdale as our premier, and other members of her party. This was a mistake.
I am disgusted with the idea of any changes being made to our pension. I have worked in health care for 35 years in a very challenging job, both physically and mentally. I have less than five years to work toward what I thought would be a reasonable pension, knowing that there are others who worked 25 years or, even worse, eight years who are receiving a “substantial” pension.
The news that this government is even considering making changes to the pension plan at this point in my career is highly offensive and an insult to all devoted government employes.
It drastically changes my plans for
the future and does not allow me
the time I need to plan for my retirement. Therefore, I will not be voting Progressive Conservative in the next election.
