Ian Troop is out at chief executive officer of the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Games organizing committee.

TO2015 says former Ontario deputy minister of health Saad Rafi will take over in January.

In the meantime, board chairman and former Ontario premier David Peterson serves as CEO.

TO2015's board gave no reason for Troop's departure.

The governing Liberals recently landed in hot water over a $7-million bonus package for TO2015 executives, including Troop.

Troop, who was paid a base salary of $390,000 last year plus an $87,000 bonus, would have been eligible for a $780,000 bonus if the games came in on budget and on time.

``On behalf of the board of directors, I'd like to extend our sincere gratitude to Ian for all of his hard work, his commitment and his contributions,'' Peterson said Friday in a statement.

``Our capital projects are on time and on or under budget. We wish him well.''

    When I heard Peterson was going to be involved with Pan Am games my immediate thought was this will be a fiscal disaster.

    His Liberal gov't was so hated that Ontario voted Bob Rae and the NDP. If you search his name you'll find he worked with a number of companies that ended up in scandals.

    Don't believe he was ever involved in the wrongdoing however it's interesting that he was linked to these companies. Poor judgement I suppose!

    This is just another Liberal boondoggle that will cost taxpayers billions.

    Wait for it folks, just wait for it, just wait for it! The Liberal announcement is at Cornwall about right now coming down the 401. I bet the Liberals are going to blow another billion dollars on this through cost overruns.

    Because these entitled stupid idiots do not fear jail or public ridicule. I believe we need to implement a citizens committee to implement a suitable punishment. I believe at the least 12 lashes or 10 nut stomps in a public place and let them hang in the blocks for a few days should be suitable punishment.
