The Real Reason the Con Clown Peter MacKay Resigned
Greg Perry/Toronto Star
Oh boy. I should have figured it out. I should have known the real reason Peter MacKay decided to resign just a few months before an election.
Suddenly decided to ride off gently, or clatter off noisily into the sunset.
He may have wanted to spend more time with his young family, or spend more time fishing.
But I bet this reason was foremost in his mind, or his wallet.
By choosing not to reoffer in this year's federal election, Justice Minister Peter MacKay joins a growing list of Conservative MPs who will avoid the impact of pension changes that will triple the amount they must contribute and lock in the money for an extra 10 years.
MacKay's decision, announced last week, means he will be able to collect his full yearly pension of $128,832 at age 55, instead of 65.
In MacKay's case, those 10 years represent almost $1.3 million.
Which no doubt explains why John Baird jumped first...
And why so many other Cons are in such a hurry to get out.
Soooey!!!! Watch those hogs go !!!!
Now remind me, what did their Great Leader have to say about enhancing the humble CPP for poor people?
Prime Minister Stephen Harper “smirked” and told Kathleen Wynne in a private meeting that Canadians need to save for their own retirement because it’s not up to government to look after them, the Star has learned.
But then of course he doesn't have to worry about a cushy retirement. He's already worth an estimated $5 million dollars. And you can imagine how big his pension will be.
And he doesn't mind waiting a few years to collect it, because three days after he's defeated he'll probably be working at Imperial Oil again. In whose mail room he got the only real job experience he ever had, before becoming Prime Minister.
And that's only because his daddy got him that job....
Which no doubt explains why our economy is in such trouble.
And makes only too clear the guiding philosophy of his corrupt government...
Austerity for others but not for him.
And yes, it is one more reason to get rid of him and his depraved Con regime.
Bye Bye Great Leader.
Go Dumbo go !!!
