    While some MHA's are certainly overpaid, there are some that are highly qualified and that should make more. We need are leaders to be the best of the best. For example, not that I am saying I am the best, but I have a law degree, a MBA, an university degree. I have a successful law practice, and I have investments in various countries that make for me more money than I will need. I beleive that I have a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience that would benefit government. I have considered getting into politics, but it is clear to me that the conflict of interest rules will hinder my investments. In short, I am too selfish to give up the profits that I make to serve our province. In other words, the MHA salary is not enough for someone with my education and experience. I would love to help make our province a better place, but not at the expense of the luxuries that my family has come to enjoy. I will not make my family live with less so I can make the province better. I don't love the province that much. In conclusion, we should appreciate that our MHA's have sacrificed so many opportunities in the private sector to serve the government. they have made sacrifices and choices that many other, including myself, are too selfish to make.

      Get over yourself. Most of your posts are offensive. We need people like you to stay far away from any level of politics. Don't go away mad just.....

    I totally agree. If we want change start in the house and pay them for what they are worth not what they think they are worth. We have a member just biding his time for the next election so he can retire,because it will be his third term finished and a guaranteed pension. This be along side of his other government pension from his previous employment. Same employer, same cash grab, two pensions there is seriously something wrong with that picture. Smarten up or hit the pavement!

    Well said. Too many MHAs think that they are above the rules, and that they deserve preferential treatment. It seems they think the people are there to serve them rather than the politicians serving the people. Taylor seems to be buying into Dunderdale's position that public employees are responsible for the mess which she has created. Trevor, are you contemplating a return to politics?
