Key Vancouver manager hits the road

Replacement for longtime boss Wightman quits

The revolving door at the City of Vancouver keeps on revolving.

Murray Wightman, the 42-year veteran who ran City of Vancouver’s streets, traffic and electrical operations, retired in March. His replacement was District of North Vancouver’s Erik Bayfield. That is, until June 9. Below is a leaked internal memo announcing Bayfield’s departure. No reason given, but I will update as I learn more.

On behalf of Taryn Scollard:

Erik Bayfield, Branch Manager for Streets, Traffic and Electrical Operations has resigned from his position this morning.
