Premier Kathleen Wynne's brother-in-law has been appointed the new interim CEO of eHealth.

Toronto Sun columnist Chrisitina Blizzard learned that the appointment happened just over a month ago. David Rounthwaite will earn a salary of $210,000 a year.

An eHealth spokesman says the decision was made by the eHealth board of directors and it is an "interim" appointment while the board searchers for a permanent CEO.

The spokesman points out that David Rounthwaite has been general counsel at eHealth for more than 4 years, well before Wynne became Premier. At the time, Wynne was a member of the McGuinty cabinet but not in the Health Ministry.

Spokesman Rob Mitchell told The Sun, "There hasn’t been any attempt on the part of eHealth to not be transparent about this. It was communicated to staff very clearly in an announcement. We had a town hall for all staff last Wednesday," he said.
