Senior managers living high on the hog on other people’s money is too common practice still.. TORONTO – Executives at Ontario’s scandal-plagued lottery and gaming corporation racked up millions of dollars in expenses for meetings, hotel rooms and meals — often with no explanation and few or no receipts, the province’s auditor revealed Tuesday. The agency furnished expensive foreign-made cars for its senior ranks, bought season’s tickets to sporting events to woo lottery retailers and held company meetings on boat cruises — all at taxpayers’ expense, auditor general Jim McCarter found. Rank-and-file employees at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. themsrlves mainly followed the rules, McCarter said. Most of the questionable billing was traced back to senior managers who had more discretion with their expenses. They included leasing a fleet of vehicles for 26 senior employees, most of which were foreign made, between $41,519 to $57,512 each, and giving another 16 executives car allowances of up to $24,000 a year. Questions remain about why it took so long to tackle dodgy spending at OLG. The agency has been under fire for years over insider wins, botched scratch-and-win tickets, even buying foreign cars as casino prizes at a time when thousands of Ontario auto workers were losing their jobs. Opposition Leader Tim Hudak called it the latest example of “runaway expenses” at provincial agencies under Premier Dalton McGuinty’s watch

It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.
