-- VICTORIA -- British Columbia lawmakers have been handed a report recommending dramatic increases to their basic MLA pay and a return to a pension plan that was scrapped in 1996.
An independent panel set up by the B.C. Liberal government has recommended a 29-per-cent increase in basic salary to $98,000, up from the current $76,100. The premier would get a 54-per-cent salary hike to $186,200 annually.
