Questions are being raised in the Senate about whether the CBC is trying to mislead Senators regarding the salaries of the the Crown corporation's big-name journalists.
Documents provided to the Transport and Communications Committee of the Senate show salary ranges for staff at the CBC.
These documents seem to suggest that the maximum salary scale for chief correspondent Peter Mansbridge is $80,500.
The salary scale for radio host Jian Ghomeshi and TV host Amanda Lang ranged from $60,844.32 to $77,390.42.
The National Post reports that members of the Senate committee are contemplating issuing a subpoena for information, something rarely used in the upper chamber.
