Move Government Options!!!!

I could not believe my ears when I heard our Provincial Government members feel they should have a raise in salary to bring them into line with other provinces.
My first thought, a raise is earned through hard and diligent work. That certainly would not apply in this case. Rather than a raise these guys should have a reduction in pay or better still be fired. These are the same people that repeatedly tell us, we are a small province and just do not have the resources to provide such items as a catastrophic drug plan, can’t afford to offer better pay for doctors,nurses,teachers,police etc etc. These are the same people that signed stupid deals with large companies like Ocean Choice, Polar Foods and Homburg Inc. Poured millions into the now defunct pork Plant and continue to pour money into the Beef plant. Companies that now owe the Province millions of dollars that we will likely never see. More importantly they also owe large sums of money to several small island businesses. This province has a population of approx 130 thousand and 27 MLA’s. That works out to about 5000 people per MLA. Compare that number with larger provinces where an MLA might have in the region 100 thousand or more people to look after. If our politicians want a raise then lets first reduce the number from 27 to 14, see how they do and if they merit more money? I haven’t even mentioned the pensions they receive after only eight years in office. To our Province MLA’s your best OPTION is to shut up and start doing what we elected and pay you for.
Cheers and keep reading
