Alberta’s request to pull out of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) has “many provinces” worried about the ramifications for the rest of Canadians, says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“The idea that Alberta might not just make their own pensioners poorer by pulling out, but impact Canadians from coast to coast to coast, is not something that most Albertans would want, let alone most Canadians,” Mr. Trudeau told reporters on Oct. 25.

The prime minister’s comments came the same day that Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland confirmed she would meet with provincial and territorial finance ministers to discuss Alberta’s proposal to opt out of the CPP and explore its own provincial plan.
