TORONTO — Premier Kathleen Wynne’s brother-in-law has been appointed “interim” CEO of eHealth, QMI Agency has learned.

David Rounthwaite, brother of Wynne’s wife, Jane, was appointed to the $210,000-a-year job effective March 7.

A spokesman for eHealth said Rounthwaite has been general counsel for the giant agency charged with getting health records online for more than four years -- before Wynne became premier.

Rounthwaite’s appointment has not yet been confirmed by cabinet.
