I want to take up Mr. Lagasse’s proposal that any MP that is elected to office cut their salary to that of a soldier. I am going to accept Mr. Lagasse’s proposal, but with a qualifying condition. I will accept the wage of a sitting MP and will distribute that wage in the riding for specific projects of my choosing. Meaning I will accept the wage, but provide funding to riding groups and projects up to the amount a soldier makes. That means, distribute my wage to specific projects in the riding. In this way I take up Mr. Lagasse’s offer while making certain any money received gets put back into the riding itself. I know that this money will be well worth providing to specific important projects in the riding that will have lasting benefits for all.
