The CEO of Enterprise Cape Breton Corp. is being fired after a parliamentary watchdog concluded that he hired four people with ties to the federal Conservatives and Nova Scotia Progressive Conservative party without demonstrating the appointments were merit-based, thereby creating the appearance of patronage.

John Lynn will be dismissed as a result of a report tabled by the federal integrity commissioner, the minister of state for the Crown agency told the House of Commons on Tuesday.

"I have taken steps to terminate Mr. Lynn's employment," Rob Moore said.

Lynn could not be reached for comment.
