How Much Do Canadian MPs And Senators Make?

[/size]Whether you think they deserve it or not, members of Parliament and senators are getting a pay raise today.

[/size]The base salary of a member of Parliament jumps to $163,700 from $160,200, a 2.2 per cent increase. Senators will receive a 2.58 per cent increase to $138,700 from $135,200. By law, senators make $25,000 less than MPs.[/size]The amount of money that certain parliamentarians receive on top of their base salary due to their positions is also going up.[size=78%]

[/size]The Prime Minister, for example, will receive an extra $163,700, for a total salary of $327,400 in 2014 a $7,000 raise. The Speaker of the House of Commons, Opposition Leader and cabinet ministers will get an extra $78,300.

People losing their jobs all over the place or getting wage freezes, etc.  Struggling with rising costs of food, energy, gas, everything.  But of course, the powers that be know why they are leading the government -- so they can cover their own asses! >:( >:( >:(

According to the Ontario Government the CPI for last year was 0.08%, not that anyone really believes them.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
