British growing 'disillusioned' CMMtM PBTCR STUART Israel then and now At a is happy Full-time jobs for B.C. legislators By MICHAEL HUGHES VICTORIA Legislators' in British Colum- bia are having to come to grips with the question of whether they want to be full time politicians. Under the New Democratic in office just over a there are two full sessions of the Legislature a year and members serving oh legislative committees are fcept busy on the off session season travelling around the province. Such a scriedule leaves little time for outside business interests or professional careers and two politicians have so far tussled with the choice David for more than five years the Liberal MLA for North Vancouver bowed out of politics Oct 23 in favor of spending more time with his burgeon- ing heating and ventilating equipment supply firm. Dr. G. Scott acting Conservative leader for the past two has opted for politics with his recent an- nouncement that he will run for the leadership of the party at a convention Nov. 30 Dec 2 and should he will give up his medical prac- tice. Whether it is good or bad for the B.C. Legislature that' politicians are being forced to give up their professional careers to stay in politics or to get out altogether may be a debatable point for but not for Premier Dave Barrett. is a choice people must he said follow- ing Mr. Brousson's resignation. The premier said he is con- vinced that a politician is a full time career if we want to make the system Mr Brousson objected to the need for full time saying will be a sad day for B.C. If no business or professional peo- ple bring their point of 'experience and expertise to this Interviews with spokesmen for the other opposition par- ties in the legislature showed they are in favor of the full time role providing the sessions are productive and DAVE ANDERSON the committee work is effec- tive. there is enough to I favor .the present said Frank acting Opposition leader. said if-a person politics he should be preparjjh to work full time in the interests of the people who elected him even if that means business and family take a back seat. Mr. Richter voiced a com- plaint heard often from op- position members thai-there is a lot of wasted time at the current session and the overwhelming feeling that the only reason it was called was to qualify the MLAs for the ex- tra in sessional indem- nities. The members qualify if the sitting lasts 40 days or more With the two sessional indemnities of plus his for the premier's Premier Barrett will pull down a salary of a year The cabinet ministers have salaries of a year and the MLAs make the in sessional indemnities plus added money for serving on committees. For most of the new especially those in the many of whom worked at non professional jobs or in lower paid professions prior to their elec- tion last the or more a year is an attractive salary and more than they could expect to make outside politics. The provincial legislators' salaries are only slightly lower federal who earn a sessional allowance of a year plus expense allowances that vary from 000 to depending on where the member comes from. Prime Minister Trudeau is paid a year plus the sessional allowance and an expense allowance bringing his salary co about a year. Dr. Wallace agreed with Mr. Richter that the of two sessions and travelling committees is sound and could provide the people of B.C with better he also felt the current session hasn't been too productive and says this could lead to frustration on the part of some MLAs who feel their time could be. put to better use elsewhere. The Conservative member said he felt the sessions would work properly only if a raft of bills were introduced at the spring session and then held over until the fall session to allow for public study and debate. The only bill at the current session that has been so handl- ed is the Public Service Labor Relations Act which provides for collective bargaining rights for the province's civil servants. Liberal leader David Anderson is adamantly oppos- ed to the full time saying he has seen the system work when he was an MP in Ottawa and the net result of that was that the legislator became isolated from the public he was to serve.
