As one of their last acts of the legislative session, MP's gave themselves a hefty increase in their expense account budget.
Let's break this down a bit:
Even though MP's make $147,700 - they still increased their meal per diem to $75.40 per day. Not bad.
They also increased their vehicle allowance to 47 cents per kilometre. (I guess the government is concerned with how high gas prices affect politicians)
This confirms it: There are two sets of rules in Canada - one for our politicians and one for everyone else.
