Wallin, Gerstein and others have earned millions outside the Senate

Nearly half of Canada’s senators have other jobs, including board positions that have paid a small group of them millions of dollars over recent years, a Globe and Mail analysis shows.

Among the multitasking senators is Pamela Wallin, who served on three boards and earned up to $999,923 in pay and stock options, records show. She was suspended this week for erroneous travel claims, including some where she allegedly billed the Senate to travel to board meetings.
