G8/G20 police raked in bonuses, OT pay

CBC – Mon, 30 May, 2011

Police officers from forces outside the Greater Toronto Area brought in to work at last summer's G8 and G20 summits made millions of dollars through lucrative contracts paying them overtime and vacation rates, according to newly released RCMP documents.

CBC/Radio-Canada has obtained copies of RCMP contracts totalling $7 million for the hiring of 657 officers from 17 different local forces from coast to coast. The invoices detail how over the course of a week or two in June 2010, more than half of all the work performed by those officers was paid for at premium rates of 1½ or two times an officer's usual wages.

One of the most costly examples involves Montreal's police force, which submitted an invoice to the RCMP for 278 officers paid at "double time" for all the work they performed around the Toronto and Huntsville summit sites between June 19 and June 29, at a total cost of $3,342,578.

The officers were technically on vacation and so charged the premium rates, according to Mélanie Lajoie, a spokeswoman for Montreal's police force.

The RCMP insists it had no choice but to hire additional officers who were on vacation or time off from their local force for the G8/G20, and to pay them at premium rates according to each force's respective collective agreements.

"Before they offer anybody up to us to help us out, they have to consider what their obligations are to their community where they operate out of before they can even acknowledge our request," RCMP spokesman Insp. Marc Richer told CBC News, explaining why the Mounties' contracts appear so lucrative.

North Bay city police sent eight officers who were paid overtime rates for roughly three-quarters of all their hours, netting each officer an average of $5,742.70 for eight days of work.

The RCMP flew in 16 officers from the Vancouver Police Department for one week, paying them a total of $117,736 — $85,504 of which was overtime — and paying each officer an average $7,358.52 for the week — not including benefits, meals and travel expenses.

John Sewell, a former Toronto mayor and author who has long campaigned for police accountability, said the spending was "irresponsible in the extreme."

"It's absolutely ludicrous that you would ever employ anybody on the basis that two-thirds of their work is going to be overtime, and only one third is going to be regular hours," Sewell told CBC News.

"This is not the way anybody should be spending public money, and I think that the officers in charge of this have an awful lot to explain."

However, many of the senior RCMP officers in charge of procurement and contracts at the time of the G8/G20 are no longer in those roles and the force delegated requests for comment on Friday to the force's spokesman, Richer.

"We are always mindful, of course, that there are costs to this," Richer told CBC News. "We try to mitigate it as best we can. But again, we had some fairly significant challenges in building the security apparatus."

The RCMP contract and invoice documents were obtained under federal access-to-information legislation and reveal only a small portion of the summit's overall $650 million security pricetag. The documents do not detail the contract or pay details for the bulk of the 20,000 police and military personel — most of whom were working directly for Toronto and Peel Region's forces and the Ontario Provincial Police.

"What's amazing about this … it's all in writing," said Sewell.

Rebelitarian:

Not only Fascism: any tyrant knows to feed his troops and his cops before he feeds his people.  (I think it's called "bribery"!)

Still, some tyrants, who see themselves as merely cogs in the wheel of a tyrannical system, are often surprisingly fair-minded to their people.  My own family's traditional overlords built a church for their serfs (including my ancestors) which was quite the little jewel-box, the construction of which involved the participation of some of the greatest craftsmen in Europe at the time.  Then again, this may have constituted bribery as well, as the idea that there may have been a labor shortage in that part of Europe during the late Middle Ages may be reflected in the fact that a neighboring barony is called "Rentwertshausen", which literally means "Houses worth the rent" (almost a Madison Avenue advertising slogan, no?).  Since the rent was traditionally fixed at ten percent of one's produce to the church and ten per cent to the baron, the only conclusion I can draw from that name is that the village claimed to offer housing in return for that rent superior to that which might be found in other villages.  In my own ancestral village, the baronial residence (the Old, or Lower Castle) is only larger (and more defensible) than the serfs' housing, while the public buildings used by the serfs (such as the Rathaus (Village Hall) and the school are built to the same standard as the Lower Castle (albeit without the military defensibility of the Castle), while the church, as I've said, is a major work of art.  The New (read: Late Medieval), or Upper Castle, is one of the less impressive examples of military architecture I've ever seen (including our own little Fort Wetherell, an Endicott-period (i.e., pre-World War One) coastal fort right here in Rhode Island) , and currently serves as the Baron's own center for the rehabilitation of narcotics addicts in accord with Christian principles.

I must say that I was disappointed to discover that my family's traditional baron during the First World War (in which my grandfather fought in the Prussian Royal Lifeguard, rather than in a provincial regiment) served as an elderly commander of a last-line reserve infantry company.  I was really hoping for a fighter pilot, hopefully a member of Baron von Richthofen's  "Flying Circus", but, no dice.
