The province's minority Liberal government has announced plans to table legislation to cap senior public sector salaries.
This has been an NDP demand for over a year, with leader Andrea Horwath making a recent push earlier this month. The Liberals had agreed to this request to get the budget passed.
Minister of Government Services John Milloy says they will also start consultations on pensions, headed by the outgoing head of the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan John Leech. He'll look specifically at the plans at Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation, amongst others.
However, the NDP is critical of this, underlining it's vague and is just a plan to have a plan. They want salaries capped at $418,000 - twice the premier's pay.
Both opposition parties say this announcement is suspect, the Tories underlining this comes the day before the Auditor General's annual report which is expected to touch upon these issues.
