" I am a proud Canadian. I love our country. However I feel Canada needs a four day work week like France. Even our country to the south of us may introduce a four day work week in certain states.

Please hear my plea, and those hardworking Canadians, who can have a better quality of life whether they be a family, a student, or even a single person. Look to France and our neighbours to the south. This is the future. Thank you for reading this."

Couldn't agree more with that post, it's the exact reason why I'm on this website.

I think the Senate needs to study that questions, just like it was implemented in several countries in Europe. Our life in North America now revolves on work, instead of social values like families, love, and well being.

Thank you

Canadian Armed Forces pensions

26 Aug, 2011 | By Craig | Are an absolute mess. Clawbacks at a certain age, overshadowed by medical pensions which are of no real tangible value (they devalue the regular pension, resulting in no real net gain for a medical condition, say, like a blown off limb), and a faulty and flawed Veterans Affairs portfolio.

Preservation of Canadian Lighthouses

5 Jul, 2011 | By Michel | I read with interest the report of the Senate on the above subject.
