I'd be interested to know what Jim Sweetman proposes to do in order to get salaries and benefits expenditures under control? Layoffs? Wage cuts? I'm all for trimming fat, but any meaningful cuts have to start at the top so they won't result in creating more people that require social service supports.

There's precious little context about the burden that those benefits costs represent, too. Is the 300% increase attributable to any specific change?

So what to do, HCL? Hold the line on the Police budget? Make councillors and city hall staff take a pay cut? Cut benefits for all new employees so that even more Hamiltonians are exposed to the vagaries of our economy?
