Nova Sco­tia aims to ex­tend MLA pay freeze

Metro Canada (Halifax) - - NEWS -

A pay freeze for mem­bers of the Nova Sco­tia leg­is­la­ture would be ex­tended un­der the Fi­nan­cial Mea­sures Act, tabled Wednesday by the Lib­eral gov­ern­ment. The MLA pay freeze was im­ple­mented in 2015 and was to run un­til the end of this year, but the change en­sures no pay in­crease un­til a sched­uled re­view after the next gen­eral elec­tion. Fi­nance Min­is­ter Karen Casey says the freeze is ap­pro­pri­ate given the gov­ern­ment has asked Nova Sco­tians to make sacri ices as it deals with a tight is­cal sit­u­a­tion.
