When Chief Bill Blair leaves his job next April he will recieve a full year's salary
That's just over $367,000 and another $3,000 in benefits.
A clause in his contract states that if Blair were to ask for an extension and didn't get it,he would get the year's worth of pay, according to the Toronto Sun.
The police services board recently turned down his request for a contract
He will also be compensated for outstanding vacation time which sources tell the Sun could add up to almost another full year of pay.
Police Services Board Chair Alok Mukherjee says salary and contract for the next chief will be part of a new way of thinking.
