Michel Plouffe, who faces criminal charges, is more formally CEO of Developpement economique-CLD Gatineau.
The board of the municipal body and Mr. Plouffe have come to an agreement that ends the contract between the two parties.
The former CEO will receive a severance payment of $ 66,000 at the end of his contract in December. The allowance provided for in the contract was 12 months, but was reduced to four. The general terms of the agreement of termination, effective since July 7, are confidential.
“I thank the members of the corporation for both their understanding, but above all for their openness to dialogue surrounding this agreement. DE-CLDG is being reorganized and I want to wish the best to the new structure for the future, “he said in a statement.
Recall that the fifties has been suspended from duty with pay in February, following accusations of fabrication of evidence, forgery and obstruction of justice. Mr. Plouffe was arrested by the Surete du Quebec in February. According to several sources, he “covered” an acquaintance who was growing cannabis at his second home in Val-des-Bois.
