    One million dollars?
    They closed CBC design to save one million dollars.
    Now you know where the money went.

    No wonder we couldn’t afford to keep the Hockey Night in Canada Theme.

    They should give a bonus to the employee who has actually seen 6 of the 12 executives named who were eligible for the bonus.

    Let’s have another contest!

    Come on, give them a break, they failed utterly to meet the benchmarks they themselves set. They have seen the public broadcaster reduced to carrying Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, they have given us gems like “Sophie” and “The Point”. They are said to $35 million dollars short. They have destroyed all morale at News. If there was anyone “entitled to their entitlements” its these people. Looks fantastic when they go looking for more money from parliament.

    Just close the place down now. It’s a joke.

    Jeff Keay said
    “There is a salary component and an incentive component and given the size of the organization, the budgets that are administered, the number of people that are managed, you have to have a compensation package that allows you to attract and retain not only competent but talented management,”

    Who also got bonuses this year?
    The management of
    Lehman Brothers
    Merrill Lynch
    Washington Mutual
    Goldman Sachs
    Fannie Mae
    Freddie Mac
    Halifax SBC
    Northern Rock
    lots of European banks

    and look what “competent and talented management” did to them.
    At CBC
    -managers rewarded for managing too many managers
    -competent and talented management
    incompetent and untalented but they’re paying themselves aren’t they??

    erm, yeah. Part of the reason I left the CBC is the way they nickle-and-dime their front line employees and treat everyone else lavishly.

    No thanks.

    You have three too many zeros there. $1B in bonuses – *that* would be a story. Pretty much the entire appropriation!
