Fired FNUC CFO returns to university

April 21, 2010

Fired from his position in December, Murray Westerlund returned to his job as chief financial officer at First Nations University of Canada on Monday, hired back by the institution's new president. Westerlund was terminated late last year after he raised concerns about the school's operations, focusing on the misuse of funds and inappropriate expenses. Westerlund sued for wrongful dismissal, which he says has been settled. He says morale at FNUC seems to be positive, even though its future remains uncertain. Regina Leader-Post
