Pre­mier’s pen­sions are cu­ri­ous

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Thank you for re­port­ing on the cash earned by our elected of­fi­cials, for it puts spec­u­la­tion to rest.

Es­pe­cially, thank you for in­form­ing us of the pre­mier’s salary and his gen­er­ous do­na­tion of its to­tal­ity to the United Way.

The same des not seem, how­ever, to be the fact con­cern­ing his re­puted pen­sions from UPEI, for a pen­sion con­tin­ues, un­like a paid sab­bat­i­cal, paid ad­min­is­tra­tive leave or a sev­er­ance pay­ment.

Un­less the story is in­ac­cu­rate, these pen­sions are unique to our pre­mier in the his­tory of UPEI.

I hope such is not the case, both for our pre­mier and our Is­land univer­sity.

Col­man O’Hare, re­tired se­nior pro­fes­sor,

UPEI
