Gary Shortt – Chief Operating Officer

After 33 years great service to the TTC, Gary Shortt has decided to take a very well-earned retirement.

Gary will leave the TTC in mid-July and a further notice will be issued before that time, regarding the COO position, going forward.

In the meantime, I look forward to working with Gary for a few more weeks before he starts his life of leisure.
