Too many Chiefs...

...not enough outside auditing...
suckass political correctness

As chief in 2008-09, Ms. Clarke received a total tax-free compensation of about $243,000. Her councillors, some of whom filled more than one job, got a total of between $210,000 and $260,000 each.

Ms. Clarke runs a reserve of 87 people.

UPDATE: Chief Shirley replies...
"I'll be honest, I don't do the numbers", Shirley says. "And I think we can get back to you on this if that's what you'd like."

bearing in mind that this is an untaxed salary... this woman is actually making... courtesy of the canadian taxpayer... over $350,000 per annum.

just something to chew on, the next time you're stuck sitting in the local hospital emergency room for 7 hours.

I have lived and worked around reserves in northern BC all my life. One of the little details that they never tell you is that while the chiefs and management get huge salaries, the average person living on reserve gets next to nothing. Huge houses, mansion really, surrounded by shacks and squalour is the norm. The system is almost feudal in the worst ways possible. And Canadians, mostly through ignorance, are paying for it all.

"bdft says... Huge houses, mansions really, surrounded by shacks and squalour is the norm."

so it would seem...

"At least 80 aboriginal chiefs and band councillors made more money last year than Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and at least 200 were paid more than their provincial premiers, according to newly released federal figures."

and yeah, mahmood... the colonel was doing his best... seems like nobody took the bait.
