1 Fire Commisioner Fired on Fri Aug 05, 2011 9:12 am


Our Fire Commisioner and a couple of others, have been fired due to financial irregularities.

A provincial probe into financial irregularities at a key public safety office has resulted in the sacking of Manitoba's fire commissioner.

The Free Press has also learned that in addition to the firing of Christopher Jones, deputy commissioner Justin Panagapko was also terminated, along with another employee.

The employees are alleged to have doctored expense claims, sources said.

It has yet to be determined whether a fourth employee will be terminated or will resign.

I've suspected that the Office was "financially loose" after I witnessed a neighbour having parked his free Fire Commisioner's SUV for weeks on end at his house without it moving. (They had a new Volvo SUV of their own which they used. He bussed to his work.)

He only worked there for a year and left.

Why he was given that vehicle will always be a mystery to me.

I'm curious how long it was going on before it was caught.

It doesn't surprise me that people with the power to do so would take advantage of public funding, I'm more interested that the safeguards to prevent and stop the abuses are in place and working.
