The Toronto Police Services Board reached an agreement with the Toronto Police Association with the aims of increasing the salaries of police officers in Toronto by 11.2% over four years. This will increase salaries of Police officers in Toronto by as high as $100 million per year. This is a very bad decision made by proponents of salary hikes for Police officers like Mayor Rob Ford. In a time of economic instability when saving is the most important strategy, taking more of the taxpayers dollars is definitely not a wise move. Surprisingly Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has also criticized Mayor Rob Ford for supporting the wage hike, even though Premier Dalton McGuinty is himself increasing expenses in the Province. The city of Toronto should protest against this because if the Police get this deal Police officers will be making $90,000 per year, and this will cause police officers all across Canada to demand higher wages, which will impact all canadians.
