Re: “MPP pay hikes make sense,” Letters, Jan. 4:


I agree that we want the “best and the brightest” running Ontario but unfortunately a 25 per cent raise is not going to help.


We already pay the politicians too much for what they do and don’t do while treating people in Ontario as stupid second-class citizens.


Just because you “overpay” them does not mean the best and the brightest will run for a political po­sition.
