Poll results released Monday suggest that 79% of Canadians’ MPs have been opposed to receiving a third pay rise since the outbreak began on May 1.er Next April.

“Politicians should not get a boost when the citizens they represent are living through the economic consequences of the epidemic,” said Franco Terrazano, federal director of the FCC.

“It should not be so difficult for MPs to do the right thing and stop the pay rise in the midst of the epidemic,” he said in a statement.
