Canada: MP’s take pay rise to cover growing UberEats cost.
Toronto – Amidst the Corona virus lockdowns, MPs will pocket a pay raise on April 1, the same day many Canadians will be wondering how to cover rent, food, or utilities. For Prime Minister Trudeau that equates to an extra $5800 per year.
“It’s not a big figure” Says Mr Trudeau. “Really it’s just to cover my growing food bills. Have you seen the lines at Walmart? Frack that noise. I’m a busy man”.
The Prime Minster later expressed regret for using the word man. “What I meant to say, is that I’m a busy person. I apologize to anyone offended by my aggressive use of a gender pronoun”.
