Ontario Liberals introduce 25% pay raise!

Ontario politicians plan to give themselves a 25 per cent pay increase before the legislature’s Christmas break.

Read the entire story from the Toronto Star.

Unfortunately, the original report from the Star has disappeared due to their new and improved format. In that article, there was a particularly great quote from Liberal MPP Richard Patten:

"I think this is the right thing to do; it’s fairly humble"

"If they don’t (like it), then they can boot us out (in next year's election)."
Don't worry, Rick. That's exactly what's going to happen.
