Twenty nine public works employees who were fired after an investigation that looked at the amount of work they do, or did not do, during a day, have not only brought shame onto the city, but have done so on a national scale.
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation nominated these workers for a Teddy Award, for The Worst Performance by a City Roads Crew. (see Spec story here or buy today's print version) . The tag line for the awards is "The Teddies- It's a Shame Just to be Nominated."
Despite the city being cast in so poor a light with respect to this incident, The Hamiltonian recognizes and reminds our readers that the vast majority of City Public Servants are not in that light and do a good job for our city.
