Maj. John Murray of the Salvation Army addresses the media at the warehouse facility on Railside Rd. on Wednesday in Toronto. The Salvation Army has allegedly been the victim of an intricate fraud, robbing it of more than $2 million in toys from its Toronto warehouse over the course of two years, charity officials say. The agency fired David Rennie, the executive director of the warehouse Monday. He was put on paid leave shortly after a whistleblower employee came forward in mid-August. His firing came as the result of an internal audit, said Murray.
