OTTAWA -- An order-in-council says the federal cabinet lost confidence in the CEO of Enterprise Cape Breton Corp. following an investigation into his conduct.
The federal integrity commissioner tabled a report this week that concluded John Lynn hired four people with ties to the federal Conservatives and the Nova Scotia Progressive Conservative party without demonstrating the appointments were merit-based.
Mario Dion said that created the appearance of patronage.
The federal government later said Lynn was fired from his position with cause.
The order-in-council dated Tuesday says the board of directors for Enterprise Cape Breton Corp. requested an independent investigation of Lynn after employees raised concerns about his conduct.
