Flaherty's promise raises eyebrows "Bill Robson, president of the C.D. Howe Institute, said the net debt figure isn't really a true indication of public debt because the Canada and Quebec pension plans also have major liabilities in the future when Canadians retire. "You can't start adding the Canadian Pension Plan money into the overall debt figure," Robson said. "There is a big liability out there for the Canadian Pension Plan to pay those pensions. That's what that money is for. It's not available for other uses." http://plawiuk.blogspot.com/2006/11/our-republican-finance-minister.html [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on November 27, 2006]
