Fred Dunn will remain a rare senior official who is missed

I will certainly miss our Alberta Auditor General, the honourable Fred Dunn.
I use the word “honourable” in its proper context and not as commonly used sarcasm referring to politicians.

Dear Editor,

I will certainly miss our Alberta Auditor General, the honourable Fred Dunn.

I use the word “honourable” in its proper context and not as commonly used sarcasm referring to politicians.

The issue of bonus for Conservative management personnel being extravagant hardly touches the Alberta Investment Management (AIM) company’s idiotic payouts to those managers who lost Albertans Heritage Trust Fund billions.

No one, excluding Mr. Dunn and his crew, seems to take issue with paying big bucks to outside advisers for losing Albertans money, and I can just hear the spin from the CEO in charge, “Yeah, but we lost less money than we would have lost without them.”

There is no stronger endorsement than providing extravagant bonus disguised as criticism. The employment contracts of AIM’s CEO and management should be revised to eliminate their golden parachutes, then they should be fired along with the minister.
