Translink is not going to immediately reveal how much it will cost taxpayers to send two of its top executives out the door yesterday.
When asked what the buy out or severance packages were for Doug Kelsey and Bob Paddon the utility did not provide any numbers.
Instead it said it is fully transparent about executive compensation and other staffing costs.
It adds any severance costs accrued in letting Kesley and Paddon go will not be made available now, but will come down the road as part of Translink’s financial reporting.
Kelsey was in charge of all the region’s skytrain services, as well as the West Coast Express.
Paddon’s role as a vice-president has been eliminated.
