Statement from Board member Paul Dittmann on the violation of the Conflict of Interest Act
Gatineau, Quebec, 16 November 2018 – Having dedicated my career to the service of Canada, I take my obligations as defined in the Conflict of Interest Act very seriously.
The administrative monetary penalty imposed by the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner relates to a stock option financial transaction in the amount of approximately $1,400, which I failed to disclose within the prescribed 30-day period. As soon as I became aware of this error, I reported it and took immediate steps to rectify the matter. I am truly sorry for this oversight and I have taken all necessary steps to ensure this does not happen again.
The TSB is an independent agency that investigates air, marine, pipeline, and rail transportation occurrences. Its sole aim is the advancement of transportation safety. It is not the function of the Board to assign fault or determine civil or criminal liability.
