LHINs Under Fire: Chair earns $350 per day while going to school

Kathy Durst, the Chair of the Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is quickly learning about accountability – but perhaps not in the way she imagined.

The LHIN had paid $16,000 of the $20,000 tuition for two courses Durst took at McMaster University on accountability and social responsibility. In addition, Durst claimed $350 a day per diem while attending the courses.

It was reported in the Cambridge Times that Durst claimed $81,900 in per diems last year for a position the LHIN describes as part-time.

Durst says she is sharing her new-found knowledge with her colleagues at the LHIN.

Does she mean her courses, or what it means to have the health minister grilled over your perks by the opposition Tories?
