The Canadian media does a pretty good job of covering Statistics Canada and OECD news releases, and think tank reports. Where they lag behind the US is in coverage of academic research.
Take, for example, a paper published in Canadian Public Policy last year by Luc Godbout, Yves Trudel and Suzie St-Cerny on the rate of return that Canadians can expect to receive on their contributions to the Canada Pension Plan. It shows someone who retired in the mid-1990s could expect to receive a 10 percent rate of return on their Canada Pension Plan contributions, but late boomers, Gen-Xers and subsequent generations can expect a rate of return closer to 2 percent.
