Translink CEO Defends Executive Salaries

Yesterday, Translink released its Financial Statement for 2011. The document showed that ridership was up 6.6%, and that the organization has found $30m in efficiencies over the past three years. Translink has cut Executive positions in half since 2009,but the executives who are still with the company earned extremely generous taxpayer-funded salaries last year. Nine Translink executives earned more than $200,000 in 2011. Their combined salaries add up to $2.4m.Ian Jarvis is the CEO of Translink, and the company's top earner. He joined us on the program.
