Mr. Speaker, one of the things the minister just said was that she was trying to get the parties to focus on the issues.
It is very clear that one of the key issues is that workers who used to be able to rely on a defined benefit plan that would provide them with a degree of security are no longer able to rely on that security with respect to major employers in the country. This is a pattern that has been growing. The fact remains that the defined benefit provision has been one of the main pillars of the Canadian pension system.
What is the government doing to make sure that this pillar does not simply crumble?
