Salaries: Executive pay at Ontario Power topped $7.8-million in 2012

Three executives at Ontario Power Generation were fired this week by the government after a report by Ontario's Auditor-General revealed several issues. Roughly two-thirds of executives and managers received top performance bonuses – up to $1.3-million – compared to just 24 per cent of more junior staff. Read the full story.

The following data from Ontario's public sector salary disclosure documents show the annual salary and benefits for executives at Ontario Power.

The names of the fired executives were not released. OPG's website last week listed Donn W. J. Hanbidge as CFO and John D. Murphy as executive vice-president, strategic initiatives. Their biographies had been erased from the site Tuesday. Mr. Hanbidge's bio had said that he had been OPG's CFO since 2005.
