About 100 people arrived at Laval City Hall on Monday morning holding signs and wearing T-shirts decrying the Quebec government's pension reform bill.
They were there to greet Municipal Affairs Minister Pierre Moreau, who was in Laval to announce Quebec's $46.3 million contribution to new Laval's new sports complex, Place Bell.
Bill 3 was introduced to try and rein in the province's growing pension plan deficit. Bringing employer-employee pension plan contributions to a 50-50 split is one several reforms included in the proposed legislation.
It's a main sticking point in the Couillard government's budget and has led to a public anti-reform campaign by police officers, firefighters and other municipal employees.
