If you look at things that really affect people’s lives – sport, the arts, charities – they were always at the back of the queue for government money – health, social security, defence, pensions were all way ahead.

Where public pensions are concerned, many jurisdictions are running out of road.
Because of outdated regulations, workers in different types of contract often have unequal access to healthcare, pensions, education, and training, as well as other social benefits. This has to change for countries to remain competitive and for our businesses and workers to survive in the digital age.
I have a statement on the Social Security. A lot of people approaching that age have either already retired on pensions or have made irreversible plans to retire very soon… I consider it a breach of faith to renege on that promise. It is a rotten thing to do.

Toronto is a world-class city. You don’t have a debate here about immigration because you need it to just maintain your pensions: that’s dependent on people coming in to fund that.

To see poor people, their benefits being cut, to see pensions of Americans who have worked like my father, all their lives, and taken away, to see the rich just accumulating more and more wealth. I mean, it seems to me that there has to be a point where you have to say, ‘No, this has to stop.’
