Mikey must have liked that

Editorial pages across the province hissed and pissed earlier this month when TransLink's new directors voted themselves a 500 percent pay increase. That increase was recommended by a screening panel chaired by former premier Mike Harcourt. Which makes us wonder how much that panel earned for their trouble. So here's the answer: according to TransLink communications director Ken Hardie, under legislation passed by the government last year, Mr. Harcourt "received a $10,000 honorarium for his services and the other members each received a $5,000 honorarium, plus they were compensated for any reasonable expenses."
