Canada pensions in crisis. A Globe and Mail article

As more companies fall into bankruptcy, thousands of retirees are seeing their pensions fall into peril. The apparent lack of concern by the Provincial and Federal governments is jeopardizing many as they face huge cuts in benefits and income as a result.
