Servicing issues aside, if they can manage the funds on a low-cost basis then I would agree. Members will be well served by experienced money managers. Most regular joe’s wouldn’t know how to manage their money and will not want to have this responsibility. It’ll scare them!

In my opinion, if Cdn. pension fund mgrs. bought an 11% blocking position, in:
Suncor, Cenovus, IMO, and McCains Meats, they could vote “NO” on future buyouts of these companies, and save them for future generations of Cdns.
Also, if you invest overseas, you could stick to companies, such as Xstrata, Arcelor, Rio Tinto to keep tabs on Cdn. natural resource companies which have been sold to foreign owners.
