Re: More OT- Re: OT Canada Election - no more Trudeau
Arenít you proud to contribute your tax dollars to the likes of Elizabeth May for her outstanding solution to retrain our energy workforce? As you say why are they the worst instead of the best! Feast your eyes on the compensation.
As of April 1, all members of Parliament will earn an increased base salary of $172,700. This is up from $170,400 in 2016 and $167,400 in 2015.
Those members who hold certain offices may receive up to $82,600 more than that, according to the Parliament of Canada Act.
Justin Trudeau, as Prime Minister, takes home an additional $172,700 and a $2,000 car allowance. Rona Ambroseís replacement, as official leader of the opposition, will make $255,300 and also get a $2,000 car allowance.
Leaders of other parties, such as Elizabeth May and Thomas Mulcair, will see their pay bumped up to $231,300.
As for Senators, they will see a greater base-pay increase ó it rises to $147,700 from $145,400 in 2016 and $142,400 in 2015.
