Bulldog contributor J.A. is concerned about City of Ottawa employees taking municipal vehicles home in the evening:
It’s just sad. They say they can’t discriminate against where an employee lives, but the employee can’t expect a free ride to work every single day when they decide to live 50 km or more away.
How many emergency calls do they actually answer?
Are they even able to answer an emergency call in time on either side of Ottawa when they live over 50 km away from one side of Ottawa? It seems if it really were an emergency, a condition of employment would be to actually be within reasonable distance to attend to urgent issues …
If they have enough time to drive 50-100 km to attend to an emergency, why not retrieve a city vehicle and equipment only when they have to answer an emergency call?
What kind of emergency needs immediate assistance that first responders can’t answer?
Integrity is sorely lacking at city hall
