Jenni Byrne, a former top federal Conservative staffer and adviser to Ontario Premier Doug Ford, has left her high-paid appointment to the Ontario Energy Board after only eight months.

Ms. Byrne is a long-time federal Conservative operative who served as Mr. Ford's inaugural principal secretary. She was named to the board of the province's energy regulator last January, leading opposition critics to criticize the government for giving lucrative jobs to Mr. Ford's friends.

The two-year term came with an annual salary of about $197,000.

"My time at the OEB was very interesting, but I have decided to leave and pursue other opportunities," Ms. Byrne said in a statement to The Globe and Mail.
