The firechief of Kelowna recently resigned after four years service receiving a severance package in excess of $200,000. There is a lot the public doesn't know about this resignation except that it was a mutual decision between employer and employee. The documents the media managed to get (under the freedom of information legislation) had large areas blacked out. The reason given for this was confidential third party involvement. I'm both suspicious and horrified that the taxpayer has to foot such a large bill. Is there some skulduggery going on here or not? What would be typical situations leading to such a lucrative departure after such a short tenure?
