e-1261 (Bankruptcy)

Initiated by Erin Carr from Milton, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

  • Canadian workers rely on their pensions and benefits so they can live and retire with dignity;
  • Canada’s inadequate bankruptcy laws allow failing corporations to take the money intended for their employee’s pensions and benefits, and use it to pay off CEOs, banks and investors instead; and
  • The Liberal party campaigned on improving retirement security for Canadians.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the government of Canada to fix our bankruptcy laws to stop corporations from putting shareholders, banks and creditors ahead of their employees when they file for bankruptcy protection.
