British Columbia citizens overwhelmingly voted against a tax hike that would have handed even more millions to TransLink, the big spending government transit system. But now there is a new chapter in the story.
Jordan Bateman of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation led the successful grassroots campaign that saw the tax hike defeated in a landslide.
He explains what's going on now in the TransLink "corner offices":
In the middle of the tax-hike campaign, TransLink demoted CEO Ian Jarvis -- but they are still paying him his $400,000 salary.
Meanwhile, they're paying the acting TransLink CEO $35,000 a month!
Plus TransLink is advertising for a new CEO, and according to the "help wanted" ad, that generous pay structure will stay the same.
This is the same government monopoly that "needed" extra taxpayer millions?
Jordan tells us about the many fancy "perks" that come on top of the CEO's $400,000 annual salary, that all comes out of B.C. taxpayers' pockets.
