CHRC pays hand-picked "investigator" $52,250 for four months of part-time work
Richard Moon, the University of Windsor professor who was hand-picked by the Canadian Human Rights Commission to "review" their misbehaviour, will receive a $52,250 payday for four months of part-time work.
Gee. I wonder what he'll tell them?
If I'm ever, say, audited by Revenue Canada, can I hand-pick my taxman?
Can I pay him $52,250? Just to ensure he's being fair, you see.
That's the equivalent to $150,000 a year -- for a part-timer. According to the University of Windsor, Moon has a busy teaching schedule, so he'll be moonlighting for the fifty large.
Recession? What recession? It's party time on the taxpayers' dime down at the human rights commission!
P.S. I see that the CHRC also hired a lobbying firm, Hill and Knowlton, to help them with "communications" issues this spring, for a cool $10,000. I guess the CHRC's staff of nearly 200 couldn't handle all of the CHRC's communications issues this spring.
P.P.S. Note there are plenty of other contracts issued by the CHRC, to "consultants", without describing the nature of the work. How many hundreds of thousands of tax dollars is the CHRC spending on lobbyists, PR firms and other self-serving political projects? I suppose it's better that they waste their money on damage control, than spend it harassing more journalists and Christian pastors.
