Jeff Lyash tops the so-called ‘Sunshine List’ of public-sector workers making over $100,000 or more.

This year, there are over 123,000 on the list – 8,000 more than last year.

Those salaries and benefits total nearly $16-billion.

The next highest earner, and only other person on the list who made more than $1-million, is William Moriarty, president and CEO of the U of T Asset Management Corporation.

Rounding out the top 10 are the executive vice-president and chief investment officer of the Ontario Pension Board, OPG’s chief nuclear officer, and hospital presidents.
The $100,000 threshold has not changed since the list or the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act was brought in by the Mike Harris government in 1996, when 4,576 names appeared on the first list.
