I still can't believe we've gotten to the point where elected officials receive a pension after only 6 years in office! They supposedly ran for office to "serve Canadians" how is it they receive a pension after only 6 years? How did that happen and why the hell are we allowing it. They work for us and believe it or not, it's illegal for any company to provide the same plan (not that they could afford to). It's disgusting, that's for sure. If anything, they should only get a basic payout if they lose their seats - say $1000 plus moving expenses if applicable. I'd be fine with that!
