Bigger cuts to services mean bigger bonuses?

Globe & Mail reports: "Axe-wielding executives in the public service stand to earn big bonuses based on how much they cut in the run-up to the 2012 federal budget." How does this make you feel?
Does this mean that if a bureaucrat fires 1000 people instead of 100, he gets a bigger bonus? It does seem so.
Does this mean that if an over-zealous staffer proposes to, for example, relax environmental controls, his office will only benefit from it? It does seem so.
Does this mean that the Harper Conservatives couldn't care much less for what we all think? Easy question...
