I hoped CPP survivor benefits had changed
RE: Widow challenges feds over CPP survivor benefits (May 1)
My husband died 24 hours after Dofasco’s oxygen plant pipe line exploded in October 1967. He was 25.
I’d say it definitely did result in death. I have the pay stubs showing CPP contributions. I also was denied survivor benefits.
On April 28, after being honoured at City Hall for The Day of Mourning, I looked around the chamber and wondered how many families have not been properly compensated and don’t even know it. I thought that things might have changed in 50 years.
Being a ballplayer all his too short life, my husband would have been a Blue Jays fan. Tuesday, May 2, would have been his 75th birthday. Sandy Anderson, Mount Hope
