Unfreeze expatriate`s Pensions

Comment 6th August 2010

I was born in London and enlisted in the City of London Yeomanry in 1938, was mobilised in August 1939 and demobilised April 1946 with the rank opf Major. We came to Canada because I could not get ahead working for Prudential Assce Co, we were waiting for the people with positions to retire. I began  receiving a percentage of the old age pension in 1984 and instead of going up, it has gone down because of the rate of exchange. We came to Canada because it was a part of the Commomwealth only to find that had we moved to the United States our Pensions would not have been frozen.It would appear that our desire to remain a subject of the British Crown not only carries a price but is also a clear case of discrimination. I am now 91 years of age so if it is to be rectified please do so swiftly.  Peter Hobbs

Why does this matter?

It is important because there are many Pensioners in Canada whose standard of living would be improved by unfreezing British Pensions and who are being discriminated against by chosing to move to a Commonwealth country
