-- OTTAWA -- Canadians paid out to settle workplace harassment lawsuits at the CBC but the state broadcaster is refusing to say how much money taxpayers spent to settle the claims.C'mon, now people... you really think $1.1 billion in annual taxpayer subsidies, somehow makes these folks accountable?
At least 30 invoices were submitted to the CBC for harassment claims in the fiscal year that ended last March.
Details on amounts paid to each firm and whether the bill was for workplace harassment, sexual harassment or another matter have also been removed.
Give yourself a shake.

In the fiscal year ending in March 2009 — a month when 61,000 Canadians lost their jobs — the top 10 executives at CBC split a performance bonus kitty worth $888,699. The individual bonuses ranged from $4,300 at the bottom end to $165,090 at the top end, which is almost 3.5 times greater than the average Canadian salary, according to Statistics Canada.**********
