Liberals name Michael Bryant to head body that regulates accountants

December 13, 2013 - 11:05 AM

TORONTO - Former attorney general Michael Bryant has landed a new job with the Ontario government, chairing a body that regulates the province's public accounting profession.

Bryant, a former rising star in the government of former premier Dalton McGuinty, quit provincial politics in 2009 and was CEO of Invest Toronto when he was involved in a fatal collision with a bicycle courier.

He was charged with criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving in the death of bike courier Darcy Allan Sheppard, but all charges were later withdrawn.

After the incident, and his retirement from politics, Bryant wrote a book in which he confessed to being drunk during much of his time as a cabinet minister.

Bryant will replace John Crow, who is finishing his second and final term as chair of the Public Accounts Council.
