As we reported last week, Staff at the British Columbia Securities Commission were offered over $620,000 in Retention Bonus in an attempt to get them NOT to quit their jobs. Chair Brenda Leong(whom already makes approximatley $500,000) was bonused up over $140,000. Another 9 of their staff accepted these bonuses. We don’t feel this is right when they already earn millions of dollars in salary….do you?
Chair Benda Leong
We have started a PETITION at change.org and would like your support. We want these weasels to donate their portion of the bonus to a charity of their choice. With the holidays right around the corner, we think there are many wonderful organizations that would benefit from these funds. There are many people living on the streets and these people could sure use some support.
Please take a moment and sign the petion HERE. And please take a moment to leave a remark in their comment section.
Starting in May 2016, we starting asking the BCSC’s Chairman, Ms. Brenda Leong answers to some fairly significant questions. Questions that we think need to be answered once and for all by the people at the BCSC.
Unfortunately, Ms. Leong has failed to answer even the simplest of question in a timely manner. Why will this highly paid public official not stand behind anyone from her organization and support their actions? Or, if her Staff have in fact made some serious mistakes, why does she continue to let this occur on her watch?
Our letters were originally just sent to her – now they will be sent to other government officials, the media, and published in this blog. Ms. Leong cannot continue avoiding these questions – it is very important that they are answered.
And one thing we can promise – they will continue until we have our answers.
