Bishop's: small university, big paycheque for principal

Access to Information documents show that while the principal of Bishop's University in Sherbrooke may run one of the smallest colleges in Canada, his salary is anything but tiny.

The documents obtained by the Journal de Montreal peg his base pay at nearly 274-thousand dollars. And Michael Goldbloom benefits from a number of perks as well, including a 1000-dollar a month car allowance.

Bishop's has just 2400 full time students but Goldbloom's pay is in the top five for university administrators in Quebec, well ahead of some who run much larger institutions.

The head of the school's board of governors defends the salary, saying it is on par with those paid by similar sized universities outside Quebec, including Acadia and Mount Allison.
