Fraser Institute Media Advisory: Fraser Institute Researcher Available to Talk About Canada Pension Plan Expansion

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - June 21, 2016) - This afternoon in Vancouver, Canada's finance ministers will conclude a two-day meeting about the proposed expansion of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).

Unfortunately, many of the arguments in favour of expansion (and much of the media coverage) has relied on misinformation about what CPP expansion actually means.

For fact-based analysis on the issue, Charles Lammam, director of fiscal studies at the Fraser Institute and co-author of the recently released Five Myths behind the Push to Expand the Canada Pension Plan, is in Vancouver and available for media interviews.
