2 0

Another panel is making its way down to Queen's Park and this time, it's on pensions.

The provincial government hasn't been shy about admitting it will move ahead with creating some sort of Ontario Pension Plan after Ottawa rejected CPP reform.  

The Premier says the province's plan will be revealed this spring and included in the budget. This will be right before an expected election.

Kathleen Wynne brushes aside criticism that this is a tax, underlining the money isn't going into the Treasury rather investments for Ontarians after retirement.

She says she wants Ontario's plan to be mandatory.

The advisory panel is headed by former Prime Minister Paul Martin, who was announced as a special advisor on the issue last week.
