“Plan for it!” said Eng, “Canadians do not want to outlive their money. Introduce a universal supplementary pension plan for the almost one in three Canadians who have no retirement savings or access to private pensions, and increase the annual adjustments to OAS, CPP, and GIS for fixed and low income Canadians.”


“Act on it! ” said Eng, “Older workers have much to offer in the work force. Implement the recommendations of the December, 2007 Expert Panel on Older Workers, which called for a comprehensive strategy that included training, anti-ageism in the workplace and phased retirement.”

Tracey Bryce, Past President Richard III Society speaking on Medieval England. We believe she will be in period costume. This should be a fun evening. We meet in the Burlington Seniors Centre, 2285 New St., Burlington

The Richard III Society may, at first glance, appear to be an extraordinary phenomenon -a society dedicated to reclaiming the reputation of a king of England who died over 500 years ago and who reigned for little more than two years. Richard’s infamy over the centuries has been due to the continuing popularity, and the belief in, the picture painted of Richard III by William Shakespeare in his play of that name. The validity of this representation of Richard has been queried over the centuries and has now been taken up by the Society. The Society has over 3,500 members worldwide. It operates on many levels and is open to laymen and historians alike. All that is needed is an interest in the life and times of Richard III. Please see www.richardiii.net for more
