Boisclair gets double salary

André Boisclair

André Boisclair has a new government position and is making nearly double the salary of the last person who held it.

However, the job of the chair of the environnemental examination committee for James Bay has been transformed from a part-time position to a full-time one.

The former PQ leader will make $175, 608 while his predecessor made $90,000.

But, the Marois government says the chair will take on an increased workload due to the additional development taking place in the North.

Francois Legault says the premier should give more details about what's going on. "There must be an evaluation of his responsibilities and we should evaluate how much he should earn."

Liberal environment critic Gerry Sklavounos says the conditions of the job are curious. "The nomination seems to be a special kind of nomination with a special kind of privilege with a special kind of pay, which is double what his predecessor was making," he says.

"That's what's strange."

    Just like Duceppe, they give all their buddies jobs and pay them with our dime, This guy Boisclair must have some powerful friends in the P.Q. , as they seem to be going out of their way to give him any job to justify his salary. Instead of saying we should just get rid of this guy and save ourselves 200,000$ a year which we could take and put somewer were this money is needed, like healthcare or any of the many social programs that they
    have cut.
