The mayor of London, Ontario was convicted of fraud this week. Joe Fontana is a former Member of Parliament, and says he'll resign his new post because of the charges.
But current MP John Williamson (Conservative, New Brunswick Southwest) would like to see federal politicians in Fontana's situation stripped of their pensions.
He's tabled a private members' bill called the "Protecting Taxpayers and Revoking Pensions of Convicted Politicians Act."
On this week's show he'll tell Jim why it's needed now, more than ever.
