According to the Financial Post, when asked how the average GO commuter might view proposals to hand generous pay hikes to executives at some of Ontario’s bigger corporations – including an extra $8 million for the already lavishly-compensated bosses at Ontario Power Generation – Liz Sandals, Treasury Board president in Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Ontario government, offered a brusque put-down.
“Most of the people sitting on the GO train probably don’t have high-level nuclear qualifications or the business qualifications to run a multi-billion-dollar corporation,” she remarked.
Yep. She said that.
The Financial Post has more on this. She apologized but her apology is not accepted. Sandals isn't on Twitter. I was firing with all fingers Friday night. What a stupid thing to say.
We're coming for you, Liz. And it won't be pretty.
Good luck in the next election.
