if you are not familiar with it, look at the employment standards act. If they mis-treated you in any way according to that book, it may just be in your favour.

Tough Paul. I'd argue this with the labour board. If you want to work there or not, I'd still fight it. They cant fire you without other written notices. I think you're allowed 2 or 3... Have you been written up for anything else?

Was at the wreckers and a broken hood fell off its hinge and caught my hand. Ripped it open pretty deep, took quite awile for it to stop bleeding so I could wash up and put gauz on it.

They conduct business in an "interesting" way which doesn't end up being in the employee's greater interest but it does appear to be legit.

I don't think the GM really knew what my job involved so when he assumed i was taking one hour smoke breaks, I was actually in the datacenter. I was accused of taking a 3 hour lunch once simply because I went into the datacenter to work after grabbing food instead of going to my desk. This is how the company works, and quite honestly I'm very happy to no longer work there. They made promises and never kept them, screwed around with how they issue vacation pay, and the level of communication is hilarious. Management will never confront you if you make a mistake, they will ask every other employee in the company for their theories and opinions and then base decisions on that. This is essentially what ended up happening to me.

so after the cac nationals an out of town competitors car and trailer got jacked along with a bunch of other peoples tools. super nice guy as well

Title: Race Car/Truck/open flat deck trailer stolen!

Text Body:
Early Monday morning (Sept. 3rd), a truck/trailer/and race prep'd vehicle were stolen from the Maple Ridge Best Western.

Grey truck: 1991 Dodge Cummings Diesel, licence plate (similar truck pictured): Alberta VXE-444

2000 Green Miata (all stickers are still on, but may have been removed), licence plate: BYM-559

Flat deck trailer, licence plate: V74643

A number of toolboxes/tools were also stolen (Red Craftsman metal tool chest with rolling drawers, Black locking tool chest with grey top (large plastic type that sits in the back of the truck). The majority of the tools were craftsman, but there were a number of other brands as well. A number of wheels with 275/35 hoosier tires installed (2 steel diamond racing wheels, and 4 Kodiaks).

The car was modified with a supercharger, and a large number of miata specific parts, including a very rare and custom intake manifold and custom fuel rail. The supercharger and most of the parts have BRP laser cut into them (also fairly rare). The wheels on the car were 15x10.5 Kodiaks (pictured). I believe that the car was last spotted by RCMP in the Mission area, but police were unable apprehend them.

If any of these items are spotted, please contact the Ridge Meadows RCMP @ 604-463-6251

they wouldn't die that fast, I used to drag race a chevelle at 116mph down the 1/4 mile on 00 treadwear tires

But those hoosiers would get real greasy fast at sustained high speeds. Aren't they rated at 45minutes lifespan?

im pretty sure someone dumb enough to steal a truck, trailer, and that car, AND drive it around, AND be spotted by the RCMP driving it around, isnt smart enough to care about the treadlife on the tires on the car.
