The Phony #BCPoli Severance War (ctd.)....Another Thing The Dean Did Not Tell You.


As we noted recently, Mr. Vaughn Palmer saw Ms. Jessica McDonald's removal as BCHydro CEO by the new government as a 'hit':

The above Twittmachine squrqleburp was more fully fleshed out in Mr. Palmer's follow-up VSun column published a few hours later which was later expertly dissected by Norm Farrell.


On the weekend Bob Mackin revealed, as learned by a long delayed FOI release that the Vancouver Whitecaps are suing the BC Liberal invention PavCo which manages BC Place and its magic carpet ride of a roof.

Which is bizarre on the face of it, when you think about it.

Buried beneath Mr. Mackin's lede is the following most interesting kicker:

...The day after the Liberals won the 2013 election by surprise, (BC Place) stadium general manager Howard Crosley was fired and given a golden parachute worth nearly $500,000...


I don't recall Mr. Palmer telling his readers about that 'hit'.

Do you?

It is rumoured that when some employers fire their errant employees for cause there is no severance.

From J.M's Linkdin:

"From 2005 to 2009 she held the most senior public service position in the provincial government as Deputy Minister to the Premier, Cabinet Secretary and Head of the BC Public Service, responsible for oversight of all aspects of government operations."

The BC Clean Energy Act, which is a give-away to IPPs, exempts Site C from BCUC, restricts use of Burrard Thermal, etc, came out in 2010.
