Bureaucrat Earns $94K for 10 Days of Work Per Year
Jack Dalgliesh is the whistleblower who revealed problems at the troubled Crocus Investment Fund, a labour-sponsored venture capital fund which was heavily promoted by Manitoba’s NDP government.
Today, he provided the Canadian Taxpayers Federation with a host of documents related to the scandal, including a list of 156 novels he read over four years on the job. During this time, he revealed that he was paid about $93,000 to $94,000 for “at most 10 days” of work per year.
According to Dalgliesh, a trained accountant with over twenty years of experience, he “was ready and willing to work.” After speaking out about the Crocus scandal, however, he was relegated to the “do nothing” office.
