Thanks to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP), millions of Canadians are being forced to invest their retirement savings in many of the world’s largest war industries, from those making nuclear weapons, to major contractors for the infamous F-35 warplane. CPP investments include eight of the world’s top-ten weapons manufacturers. Besides investing in the deadly tools of war and repression, the CPP’s portfolio includes many of the world’s largest oil, mining, tobacco and sweatshop profiteers.

Richard Sanders is the writer and researcher of Press for Conversion, a highly informative newsletter published by the Ottawa-based Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade (COAT) which was formed in 1988. His research is unique and highly regarded. You can find out more at http://coat.ncf.ca.

    Here is a link to some of the slides from my upcoming presentation in Winnipeg. The focus is on current CPP investments in top global war profiteers whose weapons systems are in the news. From dropping the “Mother of all Bombs” on Afghanistan and firing cruise missiles at Syria, to sending F35s to Europe & Israel, testing a new nuclear weapon in Nevada, and buying new warplanes for Canada, the CPP’s war portfolio has been busy making a killing for our peaceful retirement.
