Halifax Transit manager Eddie Robar has tendered his resignation, and has accepted a job as manager of the Edmonton transit system.

Robar is the seventh high-ranking manager to leave City Hall in recent months. Other recent managers who have left include:

  • Deputy CAO Mike Labrecque announced his resignation earlier this month, effective in February. My guess is that he’ll actually be leaving soon and the next few months he’ll be receiving back due sick time and vacation time. It’s been suggested to me that Labrecque’s departure wasn’t entirely his choice.
  • Darrin Natolino, the superintendent of winter operations, resigned abruptly last month, just weeks before the beginning of the snow season. Natolino accepted a job in the private sector.
  • Phillip Herritt, the IT manager at Halifax Transit, has given notice, and his last day with the city is Nov. 20.
  • Alain Tremblay, manager of information, communications and technology operation, resigned at the beginning of October.
  • Tanya Davis, the senior traffic operations engineer, quit in September.
  • Chris Mitchell, manager of road operations, went to work for the province, I believe in the summer.
