I agree with you.I disagree, I like having it out on a major plaza where a lot of people stumble on it and take a few moments to pay respects and reflect. Putting it in Parliament would take it well off the beaten path.
They're the unknown soldiers?
What a loser.
Which nutjob promised that?Needless to say, the promised noon arrest of PMJT did not, in fact, take place.
Probably sprinkled with some folks who are just calling themselves "vets" who have never served. I somehow doubt the organizers did background checks on their supporters.Looks like a lot of vets who can't let go of their former life/identity.
Nah, Ottawa, OPP, and RCMP make time and a half for working on a stat. It’s not super lucrative.
If the employee works on a designated holiday, the employee will be paid two (2) times their regular rate for time so worked and in addition shall be paid for a full day at their regular rate of pay.
I’m sure they’d rather be chilling by the BBQ with a beer.
Exactly why I explicitly did not volunteer for OT this time.
Employees shall be entitled, at their option, to receive pay or lieu time for each hour of overtime worked, at the appropriate overtime rate.
This IMO is pure garbage. Get a fricking life. Yes we served and I don't expect anything other than what I receive from CFSA or VAC. I do not expect huge discounts etc or people to grovel in front of me saying "we're not worthy".
I'd want to know what the percentage of actual vets are in the crowd vs "supporters" just wanting attention.This IMO is pure garbage. Get a fricking life. Yes we served and I don't expect anything other than what I receive from CFSA or VAC. I do not expect huge discounts etc or people to grovel in front of me saying "we're not worthy".
Absolutely disgusting self entitled jerks every one of them.
Interesting stretch of the definition of "unknown soldier"
Yeah, like with anything, some let it go to their heads, but I don't think paying LESS attention to veterans would improve things this way. This protest is driven by hate of current management, but I suspect a lot of folks around here would be complaining if veterans are held in less esteem by any government or businesses.... Is it entirely their doing? The government and businesses are quick to use the veteran brand for their own promotion (just like they do with Pride).
If you put people up on a pedestal some of them will take it to heart.
