The longest quick report in history

The delays have been longer than the report is likely to be but Chief Justice Derek Green finally has his work finished.

What work you ask?

Well, the relatively simple job of reporting on what members of the provincial legislature should be paid, based on practices in other places.

Saskatchewan finished a review - almost identical in scope - just before Green was appointed.

So, according to the news release, the Premier gets it on Friday. He's already been briefed at least once on its contents, hasn't he?

When will the rest of us see it?

Ooooooh. Oooooooh

Maybe it will be like the energy plan.

Often promised. Not yet delivered.
