Security catches locker thie
Over 100 join $100K club
At the top o the list
The latest edition o the Public Sector Salary Disclosure shows that over 700 o Ryerson’s aculty and sta rake in at least $100,000 a year.For the 2009 calendar year, 708 Ryerson em-ployees made the inamous list. This was a sig-nicant jump rom last year’s list, where 548 o theuniversity’s sta and aculty made over $100,000.Ryerson President Sheldon Levy said he was notsurprised that the list had grown, as salaries o ac-ulty and sta increase every year, due to annualincreases in negotiated salaries.“A lot o people in the $90,000 range will fipover by salary increases into the $100,000 range,”said Levy.
Ryerson security has arrested the man respon-sible or looting the campus since last all.Jeremy Weintraub, 25, was charged with sevencounts o thet and our counts o breaking andentering, police said. Weintraub, who lives in To-ronto, was in court last week. He is not a Ryersoncommunity member.He was arrested on March 29, just beore mid-night by 50 Gould St.Detective Mike Balint rom the 51 DivisionMajor Crimes Unit said Weintraub was caught oncameras by Ryerson security. He had been spottedat least twice beore on video. Weinstraub was stopped when he returned topick up a piece o stolen property he let on cam-pus to pick up later.The suspect allegedly broke into lockers andstole the contents. He is also accused o steal-ing three projectors rom oces and labs, whichranged in value rom $2,000 to $4,000, All o theprojectors have been recovered and returned.Ryerson’s set-up may also have contributed to why the school was targeted.“They want people to be able to come and go which is great but there’s also some disadvanatag-es to that,” said Imre Juurlink, security supervisor.She said there were a number o locker break-insreported to security that took place beore Wein-straub was arrested.Juurlink said the arrest was the result o a lot o hard work and a little luck.“What they’ve been doing so ar has beengreat,” Balint said o Ryerson security’s help.Kailynn White, a third-year early childhood ed-ucation student, said she’s noticed posters aboutlocker break-ins mostly in Kerr Hall.“I never put anything in it [the locker] or long,obviously it’s not sae!”, she said.

 A company that was responsible or hauling away waste rom the ongoing construction at theImage Arts building is still looking or payment. Atlas Recycling Systems Inc., a company con-tracted to take away abestos waste removed romthe Image Arts building, has led a $43,349.22statement o claim against Krytiuck Contracting Inc. and Ryerson University.The statement o claim outlines the details o a construction lien the company placed on thesite. Construction liens are placed on construc-tion sites when companies eel that they havenot been properly paid or all the work they havecompleted on a job.Krytiuk Contracting Inc. is a demolition com-pany that was hired by PCL Constructors, the gen-eral contractor in charge o managing the project,said Ian Hamilton, the director o campus plan-ning at Ryerson.Krytiuk Contracting Inc. was eventually askedto leave the site by PCL Constructors. Ryerson islisted as a party o the statement o claim and asa party or the construction lien because they arethe owners o the property.“I would suggest that there had to have beensome scheduling impact, and we’re just going to work that through,” said Hamilton.Because o Krytiuk Contracting’s removal romthe site, a number o companies who were alsoowed money by the company put liens on theproperty, said Hamilton.“This is not just Atlas
it’s a wider situationhere,” said Richard Hammond, the lawyer repre-senting Atlas Recycling Services Inc.None o these allegations have been proven incourt. According to land registry records, a total o eight construction liens had been placed on theaddress o the Image Arts building since 2003.Six o these liens were issued ater the spring o 2009, when the Image Arts construction started.Despite the liens, construction is continuing as planned, said Julia Hanigsberg, the general

I make jokes that if they leave the cutoff at $100,000 that in about ten years,most people on the planet would beon it.

The salary o the president is determined by the board o govenors, and the salaries o vice-presidents are recommended by the presidentand then are approved by the board, said Levy.The Public Sector Salary Disclosure list showsthe names, positions, salaries and total tax-able benets or all employees who make over$100,000 at an organization that receives und-ing rom the provincial government.Heather Lane Vetere, vice-provost student ser-vices at Ryerson, said the $100,000 cuto or thelist was mandated when very ew people madethat much.“I make jokes that i they leave the cut o at$100,000 that in about ten years, most people onthe planet would be on it,” said Lane Vetere.Some salaries, like that o Adam Kahan, vice-president university advancement, decreasedthis year. Levy said changes in wages can be dueto sta taking on extra duties, such as serving asa dean or a vice-president or a term.Kahan was unavailable to comment on his sal-ary changes.In addition to post-secondary insitutions, thelist also discloses the salaries o employees o hospitals, school boards and municipalities
