It's really mostly about pensions, you know. Those who run again and are re-elected will have to wait util 65 to collect vs today's rules which let them collect immediately on quitting or losing.
If I was an MP, I'd be walking out the door too. Especially if I was in my 40s or 50s. Why wait another 10 years for a pension when you can get it sooner. That's a lot of money your foregoing.
Nothing to stop you running again at another level either. Ottawa's mayor is happily collecting his Provincial MLA pension, while our former mayor is collecting his municipal pension while being Ontario's energy minister
