Ontario government to review bonuses for managers
Ontario's cash-strapped government will review a system that awarded bonuses to almost all eligible senior public servants as it tries to eliminate a $15-billion deficit, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday.
He made the comments after The Canadian Press reported that nearly 98 per cent of eligible managers in the Ontario Public Service got bonuses in 2011.
McGuinty said he's concerned that "a lot of people" are getting bonuses.
"If everybody gets pay for performance, it's not pay for performance, it's pay," he said Wednesday after touring a Toronto school.
"I think we need to revisit the whole concept of pay for performance, given our fiscal reality."
