MLA Pay Increase

The question of an MLA pay raise in the midst of this pandemic seems so wrong. The reason given, our MLAs are the lowest paid in the Country. I doubt we will get an argument over that, however, lowest paid also applies to just about every working islander. We also have many working part time or not employed at all. If we put this in perspective our MLAs have the smallest (approx 5000)constituent base. Hence they have the lowest working areas compared for example, to Ontario. Where the MLA equivalent might have base of approx 150.000 constituents. I have little interest in the argument, if we don’t pay a good salary we don’t get good people. From where I sit I can only see government corruption and greed. Irving running the land as he sees fit and no politician has the guts to stop him. So until we get dedicated politicians who actually work for the voters, I say no to the increase in their salaries.
God Bless and keep reading.
