Common Councillor Says You Have To Eat An Elephant One Bite At A Time

It appears how the city's pension board is governed will be looked at by Common Council at some point in the future. 

There have been questions raised at the defamation trial of former Common Councillor John Ferguson whether there are too many trustees who are receiving or will be getting pensions from the city and does that vested judgement cloud their decisionmaking. 

Common Councillor Peter McGuire tells CHSJ News there will be plenty of time to do that but getting pension reform approved by the provincial government is the big priority right now because it will free up money that can be put into muncipal services rather than just the pension plan.
