Lorne Nystrom NDP Regina—Qu'Appelle, SK

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-218, an act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985.

Mr. Speaker, this act would make a number of changes to the Pension Benefits Standards Act. Among those changes, it would also give the members and beneficiaries of pensions in this country some representation on the boards of trustees of the pension funds, on the pension committees and on the pension councils, as well as about five or six other important things I do not have time to enumerate today.
