The six figure handshake

In October, The Globe and Mail's Justine Hunter reported on Ross Curtis's abrupt departure as British Columbia's oil and gas commissioner. At the time, the government refused to say why Mr. Curtis was terminated. Nor would the government say whether he received severance. But the commission's executive compensation statement, which was released last month, is blabbing. According to that report, "As part of his severance agreement, Mr. Curtis received salary continuance until March 31, 2008 and received a lump sum settlement payment on March 31, 2008." The total value of that agreement: $154,170.
