How did a rooster finds his way into Côte Saint-Luc?

Where do we stand on the current pension plan crisis?

Many of people have asked me what the city of Côte Saint-Luc's official position is on Bill 3, the Quebec government's Municipal Pension Plan legislation. The recent mob scene of protests at Montreal City Hall show that the anger of some of the unions has gotten out of control. Thus far, in our community, staff have not reacted in such a manner.

We are part of the Association of Suburban Municipalities. Here is their official position on Projet de loi 3 and the need to deal with one of the key issues that has contributed to the current pension crisis, this being the fact that municipal employee salaries are 18 percent greater  than those paid to provincial public sector employees and 38 percent more when we talk about total remuneration (salaries + fringe benefits).
