Sask: No MLA left behind

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.

Geez, what's in the water... a Legislative Secretary to study the Music Industry...What's next, a Legislative Secreatry to crack the Da Vinci Code.

That is ridiculous, almost as ridiculous as organic farming itself, is. Organic farming should be discouraged not given ministerial oversight.

But think of their would they explain that Daddy's business card only has one title?

That's right my father is the MLA for Turtleford-Drygrass AND he's the undersecretary to the pyrogy commissioner.

One NDP SK cabinet minister, before he was re-appointed to cabinet, was widely rumoured to be about to resign; until he was abruptly re-appointed. I suspect that it is all about self-service for all of these socialists.

Maybe they want to be appear to be doing something other than collecting a fat paycheque...just a thought.
