Former Manitoba Crown corporation boss to get $180 an hour for new work

WINNIPEG - The former head of Manitoba Public Insurance is going to return to work temporarily for $180 an hour.

The Crown corporation's former chief executive officer, Marilyn McLaren, was given a six-figure package when she retired recently, but has been hired back on a temporary basis.

One of her duties will be to help the agency seek a rate increase before the Public Utilities Board.

Documents obtained by the Opposition Progressive Conservatives show McLaren will be paid $180 an hour for a minimum of 22 hours of work each month.

The minister responsible for MPI, Andrew Swan, says it's not unusual for former executives to be rehired on occasion.

Tory Leader Brian Pallister says it makes no sense for a Crown agency to pay someone so much, while also seeking more money from the provincial regulator.
