WATCH CBC NEWS AT SIX TONIGHT WITH NEW BRUNSWICK NO#1 INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST ROBERT JONES INVESTIGATION OF MLA'S PENSIONS!!!
Charles Leblanc - December 19, 2008
This is a very sad story and New Brunswickers can't do a single thing about it!!
The date was April 29th!!! <...> The media and New Brunswickers were focusing on the Flood. <...> Mike Murphy and all the MLA'S in the Legislature stayed in the Chambers to pass a hick of 6 Millions bucks for their pension!!!

They spent as much on a golf course last summer (correct me if I´m wrong, too lazy to double check figure right now), way more on some bank - what would have given them the idea they couldn´t get away with this?
Until more debt-slaves take their eyes firmly off the hockey game and miscellaneous nonsense (can you say Olympics 2010, Kanadians?), our ´leaders´ can keep the ship headed straight out into the ocean of tyranny and rape by inflation.
CBC has done a decent job, but really - Nieuwe Braunschweigers have as much themselves to blame for meekly accepting Irving Nieuws´ coverage and coverup of their and others´ devious and endlessly questionable activities.
That we´ve accepted unethical behaviour in the biggest players (from briefcash ´o cash Mulroney to K.C. ´I´ll pay my taxes in Bermuda´ Irving) makes it innevitable that the lesser players would want to get involved, and would have no idea how to go about accomplishing it inconspicuously.
The low standards of the voting populace may actually backfire on the individuals who voted for this and other measures, when the overt inequity and unprecedented greed becomes clear.
The predictable consequences of these sorts of measures repeated has also led to a situation (bankster breakdowns, billionaire bailouts) that may possibly provide the ´stimulus´ to get joe-six-pack back into action, politically speaking.
I wouldn´t want to be a NB neo-lib candidate running in the next election... Oh, now we now why they need the pension boost.
