The Canadian Taxpayer Federation’s Scott Hennig is calling on the Stelmach government to revoke potential pay increases of up to 34 per cent to cabinet ministers and the premier, which came in response to a decision made last week to increase the pay of the speaker and the Liberal and NDP leader pay by up to $42,000 per year — effectively making both earn more than the premier.

“Clearly the Members’ Services committee made a grave error in granting additional committee pay to the speaker and the leaders of the opposition,” said Hennig.

“However, cabinet should not have attempted to ‘one-up’ Kowalski and Taft by giving themselves 30 per cent raises. Two wrongs don't make a right.”
