Great interviews Charles. For those who don't watch, since Charles has a tendency towards hyperbole, it is not Charles who is making the accusation about drinking on the job. However, this is dangerous territory. That's a pretty serious accusation and at this point you are relying on a witness' statement which hasn't been proven. You have to do some serious drinking before you 'smell like liquor'. But using Listerine just prior can have that same effect. The question marks in the headline is a good thing, but the comment "Dan Brussiere's is drinking on the job" is inflammatory. All you know is that in this one case he is being accused of it. I'm not going to say thats as serious as the natives being barred, but its pretty bloody serious. IF they actually believe that he was intoxicated then that should have been a seperate grieveance because its something that should be investigated on its own. And if he ever lost his job over it, wow, if you think he hates you NOW! Given how much he has to deal with you, I think he definitely should at least be given a prescription for medical marijuana:)
3 witnesses will tell you it was NOT listerine.. perhaps he wasn't drinking on the job but he certainly smelled of strong stale alcohol..
C'est un calisse de tarbarnacle de Quebecois. C'est certain qui vire la brosse on the job.
Smelling of strong STALE alcohol doesn't sound like drinking on the job, but more like the body is 'sweating out' leftover alcohol from the night before. Diabetes and other health problems also tend to make people smell like stale alcohol, so again, that's a serious allegation to make and one that needs to be investigated. I think its a valid complaint to make to the police, but smelling like stale alcohol is a VERY different thing from drinking on the job. Drinking or even getting drunk the night before work is not cause for termination, drinking on the job, let alone being drunk, certainly is.
Bronson - you are a credit to your parents and the First Nation People and you are learning important lessons about the way things are. Dan - use Hall's cough drops to disguise your alcohol breath and next time take a shower and change into clean clothes before you go to work.
Charles - congratulations! You seem to have driven DB to drink as well as raising his blood pressure!
well it sounds like they had a good visit with the police. must be just you charles who gets treated unfairly by the law
I hope this young man gets some answers, esp since its his first dealing with the law
8.08 -the visit with the police was only good because they knew Charles was covering the story. I have seen that the cops watch out the windows and always know when Charles is there. Still, good job Bronson.
Mikel, diabetes makes people smell like peardrops - alcoholics tend to smell of stale alcohol. Furthermore, it takes 12 hours for alcohol to fully leave the body so if Dan quit drinking at 11.00 - 12.00pm he would still be legally intoxicated between 8.00am - 12.00pm the following day... which is as good as drinking on the job, which is prohibited for public servants. Ho ho ho - this is going to be fun!
Great job Bronson! If I see you at the protest tomorrow, be prepared for a big hug.
