City lawyer who missed a deadline and cost taxpayers millions

THE DIRTY ARMY:  Nik, this City of Winnipeg (sloppy) lawyer, handling a lawsuit over water-treatment plant construction deficiencies, recently missed a deadline that cost my city a potential $20 million windfall. This in-house lawyer, whose name is somehow kept confidential by both city officials and the local media, missed the six-year limitation period to launch legal action which could have recovered millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money. It is inexcusable, and perhaps more than just a human error. The public has the right to know who this lawyer is, what exactly has happened, and how the city plans to recover the loss caused by one of its own highly paid professionals. However, instead of doing so, both politicians and administrators at city hall seem to be more focused on silly public ceremonies and awards. One such example was the recent unveiling of the expensive portrait of Winnipeg’s former Mayor, Sam Katz, which was paid for by tax payers and celebrated at a time of when the RCMP is still investigating Katz for corruption. The looting of public money and the killing of public trust by a bunch of idiots, and now also with the help of their “legal counsel”…

    You realize much like what happened with Public Works, she was the fall guy. She was probably pressured if done intentionally by higher up. Make no mistake… THIS CITY IS RUN BY AN ALL BOYS CLUB. BRIAN BOWMAN IS JUST AS SHADY AS SAM KATZ. When we stop electing people who are professional liars for a living… then maybe we will get somewhere.

    I would know… I work here.

    The city lawyer in this picture, the one whose job was recently terminated, is MS. DENISE PAMBRUN.

    Krista Boryskavich is for the last few years the Director of the city of Winnipeg Legal Services Department. She has been appointed to this position by the disgraced and corrupt former mayor, Sam Katz, who brought her with him to city hall as special advisor.
    Boryskavich is the one who was primarily responsible for the recent scandal within her department, i.e. the missing of a crucial court deadline carrying a huge loss for the taxpayers.
    Other than resigning over it, Boryskavich blamed the failure on another city solicitor, DENISE PAMBRUN (the one whose picture was posted at this page), refused questions by the local media, and then took time off until all calms down.
    This is what we get from a member of the legal profession who collects an annual salary of over 200K out of public budget.
    Indeed, this Boryskavich learned a few tricks from her shameless mentor, Sam Katz, who started this trend of bad decision making and no accountability/transparency at city hall.
    Good for you, Boryskavich, as Katz must be very proud of you now…
