This is your daily pension announcement. Get a load of this hot take from @jkenny! That is hardcore delusional to call the CPP a tax! Well actually, hardcore Fraser Institute. That is their language. #ABLeg #handsoffmycpp
BTW, CPPIB is one of the best performing supersized investment funds in the world. CPP, in studies coauthored by the Rudy Guiliani cosplayer @jackmintz, does an excellent job of keeping seniors out of abject poverty. This is what it is designed to do. #ABleg
In fact, personal finance gurus will recommend that low income Canadians do not necessarily need RRSP as a savings vehicle. (They are already in the lowest tax bracket and have CPP) #ABleg

Don't tell @jkenny the billions that AIMCO invests from their Toronto office.
In referring to private sector workers the various Fraser Institute info-graphics often neglect to mention this pension as a workplace pension. 100% covrage

Mind you, they also refer to natural resource royalty payments as a tax too. Tip: they are not. #ABleg #economicrent
If he is so stuck on managing assets from AB he shouldn't try to destroy the ATRF's investment function. A made in Alberta solution that contends with the big funds. #ableg
In the private sector if an asset manager evaporated $2 billion in a volatility strategy that blew up, they would get no more assets to manage for a long period of time.

So don't start planning to drop CPP assets on them. #ABLeg
