A disgraced former University of Manitoba music professor who retired 14 months ago amid allegations of sexual harassment received more money in his last half-year of employment than he did for the entire previous year.
According to the U of M's compensation disclosure report, Steve Kirby earned $155,944 in salary and benefits in 2017, compared with $134,255 in 2016. He left the university in late-June last year.
Kirby, a U.S.-born jazz bassist and academic, joined the U of M in 2003, later receiving tenure. On Thursday, the university confirmed that he had been on leave for the first half of 2017.
The university wouldn't comment on the nature of the leave.
