MLA Compensation

Posted By on Tue, Mar 14, 2017 at 5:13 PM

We have the third highest paid premier in Canada. We have some of the highest paid Cabinet Ministers, a number of whom will be receiving other public sector pensions. We have a MLA pension plan which an 'independent' commission reviewed and resulted in some tinkering around the edges but no significant changes and which is broadly viewed as unaffordable.


Now is the time for real reform starting with the premier and the MLAs. Reduce the salaries and go with matching RRSPs for pensions. This should be one of the main election issues. We can't afford all this.
