UBC alleges former dentistry faculty member misused funds

August 30, 2016

UBC has stated that a former member of the Faculty of Dentistry misused funds for personal gain while participating in a pilot project in Haida Gwaii, reports the Globe and Mail. In November 2015, the federal government brought UBC and former faculty member Christopher Zed to BC’s Supreme Court with allegations that Zed had misused millions of dollars that were intended to improve dental care for residents of Haida Gwaii. The allegations have not been proven and criminal charges have not been laid, yet UBC has distanced itself from Zed, alleging that “UBC acknowledges that Dr Zed personally inappropriately enriched himself during the period in which he was involved in the project.” Globe and Mail
