Tories name EnCana founder to vet appointments

Tories name EnCana founder to vet appointments by Gloria Galloway, Globe and Mail, April 21, 2006
The federal Conservatives have nominated former Calgary oil executive Gwyn Morgan as head of the public appointments commission. Mr. Morgan is the former president and chief executive officer of EnCana. If his nomination is accepted by the government’s operations and estimates committee, he will approve selection to fill vacancies at the federal level. “I can’t tell you how delighted I was when Gwyn accepted my invitation to take on this job for the people of Canada,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper told a joint meeting of the Canadian and Empire clubs in Toronto on Friday. The move is part of the government’s attempt to bring accountability to its appointments process and to prevent cronyism that has plagued previous regimes. [Emphasis added]
