Pay Equity For South African Fire Fighters – Only Right

south-african-fire-fighters-arriveSome 300 South African firefighters came to Canada two weeks ago to help quell the monster – an almost month-long Fort McMurray fire which left 80,000 homeless and will cost well over $10 billion once the blaze is history.

The Prime Minister refused to accept help from other countries, including the biggest plane of its kind from Moscow that could  dump 45 tons of fire-retardant at a time. All of a sudden the younger Trudeau even promised a pay raise to the arriving volunteer firefighters from South Africa.  Guess what? our African  friends walked off the job this week. Why? They were being paid $15 an hour while their counterparts in Alberta were being paid at least $33/hour!

Trudeau attends a recent G7 in Japan where 40,000 security forces were required and the bill for that conclave cost well over $1billion! No problem, not out of members’ pocket.  And don’t get us going on taxpayer paid nannies for the PM.  So there you have it……all firefighters battling that terrible inferno out west have every right to expect the same salary. They all risk their lives. They often work exhausting double shifts.  Screwing our South African friends is insulting just plain insulting!
