CalSun $ up

Calgary Sun staffers have received a 5% pay hike and a hefty increase in profit sharing payments, says a reliable source.

"Everyone here got 5% raises to reflect the fact we have the highest inflation rate in the country," says the tipster. "And profit sharing was massive. Up 50% from last year to reflect a record year out west."

The tipster says "morale in the newsroom is soaring since Sifton took over."

"It's like night and day since Sifton took over. We have hired a business reporter. Can you imagine not having a local business person in Calgary? Sports has hired people.
Things seem to have turned a corner."

Our thanks to the Edmonton and Calgary tipsters for providing some good news from Sun Media in Alberta.
