Nobody can say that Gordo doesn't have a sense of humour

In response to questions about the recent pay raises for top civil servants (for example, a 43% raise for Jessica McDonald, Campbell's deputy, bringing her salary to $350,000), BC Premier Gordon Campbell said, "We're not backing away from a policy of valuing our public servants".

Nobody can say that Campbell doesn't have a sense of humour. His government certainly didn't value all the civil servants who were laid off during the first couple of years of his government.

Kevin Potvin, publisher of The Republic of East Vancouver, wrote a tell-it-like-it-is piece about this: Bureaucrats’ pay hikes nothing short of gangsterism.
