The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) has raised alarm over estimates revealing the potential financial implications of delaying the next federal election by a week.

According to the CTF’s calculations, such a delay could trigger pension eligibility for Members of Parliament (MPs) elected in 2019, resulting in significant taxpayer-funded payouts.

Franco Terrazzano, CTF federal director, expressed concern over the perceived motivations behind the proposed election delay.

“This looks like the government is pushing back the election so more MPs can take a very lucrative, taxpayer-funded pension,” Terrazzano said.
