Sunshine list takers gaining on makers

“Did you know the Ontario government pays a golf pro $103,000?” Ontario PC MPP Lisa MacLeod tweeted Friday morning.

No, I didn’t. Yikes. This is one of the reasons we should be grateful for the Ontario sunshine list, first introduced in 1996, which lists all the public servants who make over $100,000.

It peels back the curtain to expose positions and salaries the government would prefer we didn’t talk about. From energy execs to the handful of municipal golf course supervisors who made the list – they’re all on it.
