Three leaving EUB in wake of scandal

From the Edmonton Sun:

Three board members of Alberta’s energy regulator have decided to retire following a scandal in which they allowed residents at a hearing to be spied upon.

John Nichol, Graham Locke and Ian Douglas have all informed the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board that they will retire at the end of November, EUB spokesman Tom Neufeld said yesterday.

“They had decided to retire already,” said Neufeld, adding that the men weren’t asked by the government to step aside.

The issue arose yesterday after Liberal Hugh MacDonald asked why the government didn’t fire the three after revelations they knew about private investigators being hired by the EUB to covertly monitor a power line hearing in Rimbey. MacDonald said Albertans were “betrayed, violated, disgusted and repulsed.”
