The annual spring ritual reveal is here again. The provincial government has released its annual Sunshine List Report on public sector salaries. This year’s list fills six volumes detailing the names, titles, and salaries of everyone in the public eye who earns more than $100,000 a year. That includes provincial cabinet ministers, MPPs, Crown Corpora- tion executives, municipal mayors and their senior staff, doctors, nurses and technical staff at hospitals, principals and teachers at schools, colleges, and universities, and a long list of others fromorganizations which may benefit from public funding. The Public Salary Disclosure Act, brought in during the Progressive Conser- vative government of then-Premier Mike Harris, requires all organizations which receive public funding from the province to provide annual details of names, posi- tions, salaries, and total taxable benefits of employees paid $100,000 or more during the year. Since 1996, the Sunshine List Report has been both the boon of anyone interested in how taxpayer funds are spent on salaries for politicians and civil servants, and the bane of those whomake the list each year. Some critics of the Sunshine List Re- port claim its salary parameters should

be adjusted for inflation and that the real benchmark now would start with salaries of $145,000. Premier KathleenWynne has stated she will not raise the threshold from the present $100,000 starting point for the annual report. In Alfred-Plantagenet, Marc Daigneault, General Manager of themunicipality, ear- ned a salary of 107 $ 054.04. Closer to home, the City of Clarence- Rockland who boasts 23,000 inhabitants, has seven municipal employees making over $100,000. Robert Kehoe, director of financial planning and economic, racked in $136,579.92, Therese Lefaivre, director of community services, made $122,503, Michael Michaud, director of planning, amassed $104,564.83, whileMonique Ouel- let, interim director of corporate services, made $121,938.41. Yves Rivard, director of by-law services, made $109,170.51, Yves
