    Unhappy ENOUGH!!!!

    Please ladies put the handbags down. I'm not looking for peoples opinions or personal arguments. I'm looking for facts about the job.

    If you would like to continue please start a new thread.

    Chriso, I'm very sorry if you feel that my defending the fire service in CANADA is a bad thing. The way I see it, you came and asked a valid question and were given a NEGATIVE view of the service in MY country. The point I'm trying to make is that there is no need to give a negative view point without having the facts to back it up. As with anything else there is good and bad and there is no need to give the entire rural (which is generally volunteer) a black mark. You specifically asked about volunteer departments and I'd hate for you to develop a negative thought about it based on narrow minded opinion. Again, sorry if you felt I was being anything other than standing up for what I believe in, rest assured I'll not post on YOUR thread again.

    Default A New Thread sounds good to me! But.....

    The Canadian Forum is "NOW ALIVE"!

    I proudly waive my Canadian Flag!
    I can eat Canadian Mac Donald hamburgers, and still live to
    talk about it....in the Canadian Forum!

    I head over to the neariest Tim Hortons, and hug my
    Canadian Fire Firefighters! (wink)

    And if I had the chance, I would trade in my G-string, for
    bunker gear today, but since I can't, I salute all who are
    brave enough to live the life of a firefighter!

    Eh! Canadians! A PEACE LOVING COUNTRY (peace keepers)and all that
    good stuff!
    So, on that note....I have come back in here to keep the peace!
    Pass the Timmy's Please.

    Crisco,
    Hopefully you did not get a bad impression from this site.
    You will love the Canadian Firefighters, and you will love Ontario.
    Re: Small town departments....I guess if your going into that type of thing you will find out for yourself.

    Vaughan is just outside of Toronto. Vaughan is a city in itself.
    The have a few divisons as they are big.
    Thornhill, Woodbridge, Maple, Klienburg, etc.
    It is actually better then the city of Toronto to live in...so some people say.

    There are small towns just on the outskirts of Toronto.
    I can tell you some of the ones that are really nice....Bolton,
    Beeton, Schomerg, and a few other towns that are close by them as well.

    If your looking to rent when you come here, Real Estate Agents can even help with renting. Via the internet...they can send you infor. regarding prices, and pictures...and now they have virtual tours you can see the whole house inside....actually that is how, I got the place I live in. And the neighbour hood is great!
    I loved the virtual tour of the inside of the house. And that way, you can see what your actually getting.

    All the best too you again.

    Thanks for the information regarding small towns lightup. I'm now searching real estates but it does not mean much unless you hear comments from others. Your right those virtual tours are great.

    I don't have a bad impression of Canadia firefighters, not one little bit, if anything I'm glad to see that people can be passionate about the job. PFire23 obviously loves the job and wants to defend it, that's great but the argument had nothing to do with me and it was beginning to take over my thread.

    Thank you ALL.

    You should really concider coming West Chriso. Here in the Land of Milk and Honey (Alberta) we all make 6 figure salaries, the beer is cold and free, all the women are gorgeous and we only pay 50 cents a gallon for gas after the secret oil company rebates all Albertans receive(we still don't recognize liters). We also don't pay taxes because the oil companies pay them for us so we'll keep quiet about the above mentioned secret rebates.

    So you're telling me that all that whining from the West is nothing more than a diversion? Meant to make those of us in Ontario think you're so hard done by????

    Not quite. We just figured that since Quebec is so quiet lately, somebody has got to do the whining in this country.


    p.s. LadyCapn, how are you going to celebrate when you break the 1000 post barrier? (here's your excuse)

    No, It's actually meant to make sure that those of you in Ontario remain in Ontario, if you knew how good we actually had it out here you'ld move west and then elect people like Sheila the liar out here. We are glad to have all of the Maritimes and Newfoundland living here but we draw the line when it comes to "Upper Canadians". (he said with tungue planted firmly in cheek, I love all Canadians including Upper ones, I also love my Upper teeth but they tend to cause me more pain than my lower ones, if you catch my analogy).

    You would be welcome out here LadyC but some of your politicians wouldn't be.

    By the way on a polical note, don't you think that Belinda Stronach looks far better in a cocktail dress than Paul Martin. Then again they both look better than Sheila.

    As for dear ol Shiela, we share a hometown and that's about it. In fact, even her hometown is getting tired of her.............

    I didn't even notice the post numbers

    Gee, and I always thought I was pretty quiet

    Kim who?

    By the way on a totally different subject, if your a CFL fan watch for Doug Flutie in a Ti-Cats uniform next year. I had the pleasure of sitting next to a guy from Hamilton on the way home from the Grey Cup in B.C. after the Ti-Cats won (it was a long time ago). He was very nice as long as he was passed out but every time he woke up he yelled the Osky Wawa thing in my ear. It got a little tired after about the 5th time. At about the 100th time even the Hamilton fans wanted him thrown out.

    This is off the thread topic but is it true that in Hamilton the Captains got submarined in the new contract? Something about senior firefighters getting 109% while captains still get 115% instead of applicable retention or senoritiy money?

    Chriso, I know you are looking at Ontario for your future home but there is a great opportunity right now with the Calgary fire department in Alberta. They are taking applications on a continuous basis. When enough acceptable applicants are gathered they run a class through. There are alot of retirements happening in the next few years so there will be hudreds of firefighters hired. You can check out the department at http://www.calgaryfire.ca .

    FYI Clagary is a little over a one hour drive to some of the best skiing in the world. If you don't like skiing, you will!

    Not me, I'm off today. I am going out to a bar-b-q at a friends house. I just finished shovelling the first 4 inches of snow off my driveway and it's still coming down.
