One Expensive Cookie: CEO of Alberta Health Services Loses Job


The contract between Dr. Stephen Duckett and Alberta Health Services is now terminated. Dr. Duckett came from Australia to assume the position of president and chief executive officer of the health superboard in March 2009. On November 19, 2010 after an urgent meeting about reducing emergency wait times he chose to continue eating his cookie rather than speak to reporters. The commotion caused by the incident ultimately led to his dismissal.  

Dr. Duckett’s payout will be more than half a million dollars. That is one expensive cookie!
