You get a pin once you are sworn in as a member of the Canadian Parliament.

I don't really get the appeal of the ring, especially the gaudy one pictured (if that is what is planned) and can understand the link being made to rings given to members of championship teams in sports.

On the other hand, I think it's important to recognize the public service of those in elected office. $5000 rings isn't how I'd go about this, but I don't object to the idea on principle.

I think people need to think about what they get in terms of work from city councillors. I might not always agree with every decision or position taken by mine, but never doubt that my councillor works long, often thankless, hours in their elected capacity ... far beyond what makes sense based on what we pay our councillors.
