“The remedy is he is no longer in our employ. So the next thing we
look at is: ‘Is there any harm to the city? Did the city lose money?
Did anybody steal anything?’ The answer to that is No.”
—Mayor Greg Granstrom of Rossland, British Columbia. According to a
CBC news article today, the former building inspector of
Rossland billed the city for $185,000 in contract work, much of
which he approved while he was still working for the city, and then
left to join a firm that won a $5 million contract with the city.
This mayor needs a little ethics training.
