How is it even remotely ethical for the Media Party darling and Green Party’s first BC MLA to be on the payroll of a publicly funded institute like a university while influencing provincial government decisions that include post secondary schools?:
There’s also Weaver’s duties at the University of Victoria, where he’s still on staff as a part-timer. (He said he’s collecting one-fifth salary or about $20,000.)
Then Weaver justifies it:
“I took a huge salary cut to take this job,” Weaver said. “It’s not like I’m double-dipping.” (see here)
Umm ya, this is exactly what double-dipping is: When someone draws a salary from two sources of public monies.
You’d think a guy bright enough to be involved in the “Nobel-prize-winning UN panel on climate change” would understand that.
