GTAR Press Release

I was asked if there was an English copy of the Press Release that I had sent earlier this week. No there isn't, but I have decided, exceptionally, to produce a very liberal translation of the release which I attach to this email, if it can be of use to you and your membership. It also clearly identifies GTAR members for your info. Note that our four associations only represent 2000 of the 115 000 retirees, but we participate equally. I also take the opportunity to inform you that the press conference and the media attention it caused, the President of the Treasury Board has accepted to meet with the three GTAR spokespersons. The meeting has been scheduled for Minday February 23.
