Re: “HRM finally releases its sunshine list

I think we can all agree that the infrastructure being managed in Toronto is more complex and demanding responsibility then HRM. Also the cost of living in Toronto is higher. Yet here is the list of salaries paid to the city workers in Canada's biggest city. Seems a little to close for comfort to this tax payer.

Joe Pennachetti, city manager: $363,234.
Bill Blair, chief of police: $334,291.
Andy Byford, TTC CEO $323,638.
David McKeown, medical officer of health $298,488.
Barbara Yafee, associate medical officer of health, communicable disease control $288,488.
Elzbieta Rozak, registered nurse long term care & hostels $285,922.
Michael Finklestein, associate medical officer of health, $275,750.
John Livey, deputy city manager $272,824.
Gene Jones, CEO Toronto Community Housing Corp. $270,581.
Sameh Ghaly, TTC chief capital officer, $257,600.
Other noteable city workers on the sunshine list include:

Ombudsman Fiona Crean: $232,322.
Solicitor Anna Kinastowski: $232,739.
City librarian Jane Pyper: $228,618 (note Pyper has recently announced she's stepping down).
Chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat: $216,867

Re: “HRM finally releases its sunshine list

The salaries don't match the infrastructure they are managing. Major league salaries for minor league infrastructure. The sewers and buses are dilapidated to the point of complete replacement. Guy's before we start to pat ourselves on the back with nice salaries shouldn't you have the community basics like the sewer system working like a clock first?

Re: “Justin Trudeau’s announced $119 million in federal funding for infrastructure projects in Nova Scotia. What should get fixed first in HRM?

I wish there was something in the project lists which targeted benefits for a single person who lives downtown in an condo with a dog and has their own car. Dog park improvements?? dedicated bike paths? underground connecting walkways between spring garden and the new convention center. How about moving the ports to a new location and reclaiming the entire waterfront for development and the people who live here to actually enjoy. But I guess if the sewers and buses are gone to hell in the only spot in NS with money, what chance do we have at some luxury items like a new park. , Good thing we have our friendly lighthearted East Coast attitude to keep us from going mad with depression.
