Whatever happened to Freedom 55?

BLOG: Freedom 55 was a marketing campaign from London Life Insurance in the mid 1980s that exemplified the optimism of a 25 year bull market in its early stages. The ads showed healthy middle-aged couples climbing mountains and sailing into the sunset.

Fast forward to the post 2007 financial meltdown and Freedom 55 has become a cruel joke. A recent survey by Sun Life Financial found the average Canadian now expects to retire at 68 - a full year more than expectations from the previous year's survey.
