Toronto City Council has voted to extend the contract of ombudsman Fiona Crean by two years.

Crean ran afoul of Rob Ford and his allies by criticizing the Mayor for interfering in the appointments process for city agencies and boards.

Ford wanted Crean’s head for that. But councillors negotiated a compromise. Instead of the normal five-year term, they granted her another two years.

Three councillors voted against the contract extension. Ford allies Giorgio Mammolitti and David Shiner wanted Crean gone. Councillor Gord Perks said it was shameful that Crean was penalized for doing her job.
