The proposed newcomers are Grant Billing, Ian Bruce and Judy Fairburn.
Mr. Billing, a chartered professional accountant, is the former chief executive officer of Superior Plus Corp. and the current chairman of Tervita Corp. He did a short stint as interim CEO of Tervita's predecessor (of the same name) in 2017, when Tervita was a private company backed by the distress fund manager Solus Alternative Asset Management. In 2018, Tervita went public through a reverse takeover of Newalta Corp., creating the largest energy-focused waste and environmental services provider in Canada. In addition to serving as chairman of the now public Tervita, Mr. Billing is also a director of Badger Daylighting Ltd.
