His Worship David Miller
Mayor of the City of Toronto
Toronto City Hall

Dear Mayor Miller:
I write to resign as CEO of Invest Toronto with immediate effect.
It was a huge honour to serve the City of Toronto by helping to steer
Toronto's economy through these remarkable economic times and to put
together the framework for Invest Toronto.
I am deeply grateful for your confidence and the Invest Toronto Board of
Directors' belief in my ability to take on such an important role. It is
one that I loved and leave with considerable regret.
I do not believe, however, that I can continue in this position on
account of the circumstances of the past two days.
Let me be clear: I am innocent of the very serious accusations made
against me. It would, however, be unfair to you, the Board and above all
to the residents of Toronto to allow this event to distract from the
vital efforts of Invest Toronto.
The CEO of Invest Toronto is a position that demands the full attention
and energy of its owner. Torontonians demand no less.
