BC Ferries Directors Get Fat Pay Raise

Chairwoman of the Board
Gets $35,000 Raise

The local press reports that the directors for B.C. Ferries will collectively get a total raise of $233,000.

The chairwoman, Elizabeth Harrison will see her compensation increase from $105,000 to $140,000 and Nanaimo's Tom Harris will see his increase from $48,000 to $63,000.

The question of political rewards is also hinted at with the report that Harris donated $11,000 to the Liberals from 2005 - 2007 and the firm Harrison works for donated $30,000 during the same period.

NDP MLA Leonard Krog of course is calling the appointments to the BC Ferry board a gravy train the Liberals use to reward their supporters.
