This has to be unheard of, right? I mean....every single NDP MLA in Saskatchewan is padding their salary with extra duties.
Premier Lorne Calvert today announced the appointment of Saskatchewan Rivers MLA Lon Borgerson as Legislative Secretary for Organic Farming and Saskatoon Greystone MLA Peter Prebble as Legislative Secretary for Renewable Energy Development and Conservation. Last week, Calvert named Regina Rosemont MLA Joanne Crofford as a Legislative Secretary to examine the music industry. The position of Legislative Secretary pays an extra $12,000 on top of the MLA base salary of $64,816.
Secretary for organic farming? Can't organic farms be covered off by the massive department of agriculture? This is a joke. Shameless.
