He has lectured on executive leadership and management at the Gatineau campus of the École nationale d’administration publique (ENAP), and has been a guest speaker on these same subjects at the University of Ottawa and McMaster University.

  1. Am I the last person in the city to know the NCC has an ombudsman? Is this a full-time post or an as-needed position? What sorts of issues does this person solve – is there a report on the work done? What’s this costing the NCC?


  2. Only one quickie. Why would the ombudsperson position be a “part-time job”?

    If the second paragraph in the release had any real meaning, then a full time job it is.
