John Doyle had wanted to return as BC auditor general for another term
John Doyle will be returning to Australia.
BC auditor general John Doyle has agreed to a job offer in his native Australia.
He has been appointed to a similar position in the southeastern State of Victoria.
With the announcement, Doyle has rejected the Liberal government’s offer to continue to work as the BC auditor general for two more years.
Doyle had sought a six-year second term after the expiration of his current term as the BC auditor general later this year.
A legislative committee declined to offer Doyle a second term, creating a ruckus among supporters who suggested it was because of Doyle’s tough criticism of the Liberal government. He was eventually offered a two-year extension which he has yet to formally accept.
Doyle was the chief financial officer at Edith Cowan University in Australia before coming to the B.C. to work as auditor general back in 2007.

Doyle has said he was looking forward to another term until the recent incidents.
His tenure as the BC auditor general was marked with his often fierce criticism of the Liberal government.
One of his recent criticisms was aimed at B.C.’s healthcare which he claimed spent only a tiny portion of its budget on disease prevention.
