British Columbia Railway Co.'s president and chief executive officer has been pummelled by the press for making $569,975 to preside over a Crown corporation with 30 full-time equivaliences that missed two of its key performance targets and posted operating losses of $17.3 million in its most recent fiscal year. But at least Kevin Mahoney seems be sharing his largess. Because, according to Elections British Columbia, a contributor with the same name made two $2,990 donations to the provincial Liberals in 2005. Mr. Mahoney didn't return a call requesting comment made last week.
