John Nuraney, misidentified as Buraney
(possibly a fusion of Burnaby and Nuraney), is among four BC Liberal
MLAs seeking to opt in to the government's new pension plan.
Politicians often get attacked for improving their compensation. In the case of MLAs Claude Richmond, Ralph Sultan, Dan Jarvis and John Nuraney, they made significant sacrifice to enter the public realm. For the amount of time put in MLAs in general are undercompensated for the work they produce. There may be exceptions but most MLAs could easily make more, work fewer hours, travel less and spend more time with family.
These older MLAs deserve the same pension benefits as their younger counterparts.
