Newmarket Mayor gets $159,856 - not $182,000

The Toronto Star has today published this correction to a news story it ran on 11 April 2015.
  • "An April 11 article about what municipal leaders were paid in 2014 misstated the salary of Newmarket mayor Tony Van Bynen. Van Bynen’s salary was not $182, 000.

"In fact, Van Bynen’s total compensation was $159.856.84 in 2014. That included $91,164.26 in salary for his role as mayor (which includes a tax-free portion of $30,379) and $53,165.58 salary for serving as a representative of York council. His compensation also included taxable benefits of $6,762 from the town and $8,794 in benefits from the region.

"The article also mistakenly said that Winnipeg mayor Brian Bowman was paid $178,114 in 2014. In fact, Bowman only became mayor in November of 2014."

Tony Van Bynen is also a director of Newmarket Hydro by virtue of his office as Mayor. We must assume this is not remunerated.
