The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Beverley McLachlin, will receive a $71,800 raise this year bringing her salary to $370,300.  Hot damn!

The raise was included in Bill C-45, the Canadian government’s omnibus budget bill, sponsored by Minister of Finance James Flaherty, passed into law last December.
