Will 'Lifers' get pensions?

*** So does this mean Clifford Olsen and Paul Bernardo get pensions? ***

Someone needs to get their head read.

In his annual report to Correctional Services of Canada, Howard Sapers claims Canada's inmates are underpaid, saying compensation for their work and participation in programs hasn't increased in nearly 20 years.

The Prisoners' Rights Committee is asking that inmates get paid at least minimum wage.

Prisoners getting paid, here in Canada and pensions, here in Canada. Must be the wicked secret agenda of the Libs and village idiods party

Correctional Service Canada is studying the possibility of increasing prisoner compensation, as well as indexing it to the rate of inflation.

So I guess you have to commit a crime and get sent to prison before you can get a perk like an indexed pension - or be on the government payroll.

Howard Sapers needs a real job. He only has this job because he failed as a liberal MLA then tragically his wife whereupon he was called from on high to fill an un-needed role as a society nag. I long for the day that Howard and that other disaster liberal leader now senator Grant Mitchel are looking at an unemployment line. Not as punishment to the individuals but as a way to get rid of government pork and professional nagging.
