Governor General Mary Simon took another pay raise this year, bringing her annual salary to $363,000. This is Simon’s third pay raise since being appointed to the role less than three years ago.

And the CBC dished out another $15 million in taxpayer-funded bonuses in 2023. 

All that and more in this week’s Canadian Taxpayers Podcast.
