Words from Hansard and Lindsay Kines

November 1, 2011, Page 8568
C. James:
"To the minister, to the Premier, to this government on the other side: if they wanted to look at affordability, they'd end those executive bonuses today and put that money into services. Half a billion dollars in bonuses paid at B.C. Hydro for running what is actually a deficit. More than $1 million in bonuses to just the top four executives at B.C. Ferries.

"Worst of all, this Liberal government actually paid bonuses to executives at Community Living to cut back on services for the most vulnerable. Now, as we've heard, the minister said that bonuses were wrong at Community Living, but there's still no guarantee that that money won't be rolled into salaries.

'My question is to the Premier. Isn't it time today to stand up, say no to bonuses and put those dollars into services and supports for people in British Columbia?
Mr. Speaker:
"Members. Members.
Hon. S. Cadieux:
"I'm pleased to give the answer that I gave before, relating to the situation of variable pay or incentive plans at CLBC. When it came to my attention that that was the practice at CLBC, I thought that was the wrong policy for that organization, given that it was serving people with disabilities and providing for their supports.

"I had a conversation with the board chair, who indeed agreed with me and has agreed to end that system..."
CLBC execs could still get bonuses, Lindsay Kines, Times Colonist, June 22, 2012
"Senior staff at Community Living B.C. could still receive bonuses for work they did last year despite a government promise to end the program, the Times Colonist has learned.

"Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux called for an end to the bonus system last October when the Crown agency was under fire for closing group homes and cutting services to people with developmental disabilities.

"But her ministry confirmed Thursday that the government and the board of Community Living B.C. decided to keep the system in place until the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012..."

    "I had a conversation with the board chair, who indeed agreed with me and has agreed to end that system...and decided there are much more effective ways to reward our party donors than pretend they have a job they need to do competently."

  2. Christy is doing her duty. She is supporting Campbell's evil agenda right to a Tee and, is even adding to it. Campbell even gave his useless self, a $60.000 per year raise. What difference is that, from CLBC, BC Ferries, hospital administrators? That only scratches the surface, on the thefts and corruption in this province. Christy is worse than useless. The Campbell/Clark BC Liberals have been a litany of, lies, deceit, thefts, corruption, dirty tactics, dirty politics, and they certainly did cheat to win. That is the mantra, of the BC Liberals.
