Not only do we give CBC CEO Hubert Lacroix a very nice salary somewhere between $358,400 and $421,600, he also gets his own $34,000 – $56,500 paid chauffeur on our dime.
On top of his salary, Lacroix expensed just under $30,000 last year adding to the total of $180,000 in expenses since 2008:
“The expenses of the President and CEO are approved by the Chair of CBC/Radio-Canada,” say the documents. “They are also reviewed on a quarterly basis by CBC/Radio-Canada’s internal auditors.
We also learned that the CBC has 730 employees who are making $100,000 or more a year although who they are remains hidden under the Federal Privacy Act and Access to Information Act. (see here)
