Bombardier top bosses stunning sense of entitlement

Bombardier, Canada’s no-can-do streetcar maker, has been funneling additional millions of dollars to executives as it hopelessly fumbles Ontario’s LRT train order and grubs for public handouts. It is being slammed for its “sense of entitlement” after awarding $32.6 million US to senior executives even as it laid off thousands of workers and sought government aid. The payout represents an increase of nearly 50 per cent for its top five executives and board chairman, compared with 2015. “At the very least, it demonstrates a rather incredible sense of entitlement, doesn’t it?,” said David Baskin, president at Baskin Wealth Management, a Bay Street investment management firm.
