2 0

The province's health minister is defending the move to have the premier's bother-in-law take over as interim CEO of eHealth.

Deb Matthews underlines David Rounthwaite was appointed unanimously by the board early last month. He took over from interim-CEO Ray Hession who rook over from Greg Reed last fall.

Matthews stressed he makes the same salary he did as counsel for the agency - $210,000.

He's the brother of Kathleen Wynne’s wife, Jane.

The health minister underlines Rounthwaite is a well-respected lawyer.

She doesn't think all family members of politicians should be banned from working in the public sector.

      @don was right lol...what a funny story. As if the Liberals expect us to buy this.

      Oh wait, there is a sizable portion of Ontario, and Toronto that is- that's why they're still so high up in the polls. Never mind.
