Another Ontario public sector executive gets spendy

Trouble at the Niagara Parks Commission

 

As Niagara’s parks suffered a steep decline in visits from Americans, Mr. Noden jetted to Asia, the Middle East, the United States and Mexico, charging $395,751 to his corporate credit card between October, 2006, and October, 2009. Among hundreds of transactions were an $1,800 nightclub tab, a $199 liquor-store purchase, plane fares worth $9,665 each and a $10,729 hotel stay in London, England.

In the same period, the Crown agency reimbursed Mr. Noden for $23,950 in out-of-pocket expenses from roller-coaster rides in Las Vegas to health supplements in Korea to a pound of Starbucks coffee in Niagara Falls, which he claimed as a meal.
