The above link is a story from the National Post. B.C. MLA Jagrup Brar attempted to live off of just $610 for one month. He didn’t really seem to enjoy himself. Moral of the story: Get a job.
Irony Alert: After he gave up his MLA salary and benefits for one month, his new and only source of revenue for the month was welfare. The same people payed his salary both before and during the challenge.
