Labouring in retirement

Earlier, we reported retired British Columbia Ambulance Service chief executive officer Fred Platteel, who earned $168,167 in fiscal 2006/07, would be doing contract work for the provincial government - just like his boss Emergency and Health Services Commission chief executive officer Lee Doney. In fiscal 2005/06, for example, the government had transferred $279,093 to the former top bureaucrat's company RLD Strategies Inc. And it appears like Mr. Doney's company did even better the following year, with those transfers increasing to $286,952. In his last full fiscal year as a deputy minister, Mr. Doney - who retired in April 2004 - earned $204,627 and registered $49,682 in travel expenses.
