cpp increase

Any solution must address the chronic under-saving that threatens to reduce the standard of living for a significant percentage of people earning from $30,000 to $100,000 once the pay cheques stop -- whether by choice or not. The people who should be using existing savings vehicles like RRSPs are not.
