Thanks to the Canadian Taxpayer Federation for bringing up the issue of MLA pensions again.  This province needs to live within its means and to do that there is a need for an appropriate type of pension for the politicians.

Two other things I wish they would look at:

1) The issue of public sector workers who have a pension from another workplace and then qualifying for an MLA pension (double-dipping).  What is the solution for this problem CTF?

2) The salaries of premiers across the country and where Nova Scotia ranks.  Where does NS rank CTF?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I know it's not for everyone and eventually the feds will find a way to make it illegal or whatever....but for a guy who had been a pack a day smoker for almost 30 years, this stuff is the cat's ass! I haven't had a smoke for 6 weeks now and my lungs, my wallet and my clean smelling house are very fucking happy! If you wanna quit smoking, folks, give it an honest's a helluva lot cheaper to get into now. Between the vaporiser and some juice, I spent about $45.00 to get started. The juice seems to be running me about $15.00 a month so far. $15.00 a month for juice or $15.00 a day for smokes? Tough choice, eh? Not to mention all the physical benefits... —Goodbye tobacco :)
