There’s an internal fight brewing over BC Conservative leader John Cummins which BC blogger Alex Tsakumis has the low-down on (see here) and besides the plain unhappiness with his leadership, is the fat pay-cheque he’s arranged for himself.
I have confirmed with another party source that Cummins is indeed being paid $4,000 per month from the BC Conservative Party.
This is from a party that only managed to collect $125,000 for the entire 2011 fiscal year and the $48,000 a year would be on top of his federal MP pension.
I guess keeping one’s daughter in show horses can be really expensive and a guy might need a second source of income to maintain that big property of his.
Wasn’t there a Reform policy position on double-dipping MPs?
