I wish I could say I am shocked,but I am not.
I am not sure what is worse,the government having a 1.5 million dollar staff appreciation program or Linda Terras head of the B.C Public Service agency defending the program by saying it ONLY works out to $52 per employee.
This was uncovered in an excellent piece of reporting by Michael Smyth.
As John Cummins ,leader of the BC Conservatives , points out in the piece,there are a number of different ways the program can be abused.
This comes on the heels of Mr.Smyth’s excellent series on Bullying in the government.
It makes you wonder what else is going on and why the people we elected are doing nothing about it.
