In Canada you can do just about anything you like, as long as you don’t smoke regular cigarettes.
If you’re a smoker, prepared to be hated, but if you’re an alcoholic or a drug user, that’s okay, you can even bring your booze and drugs to work.
You have the full backing of the Ontario government and union. Three years ago random alcohol and drug testing for TTC drivers was suggested, but the politicians vetoed this request.
Earlier this week a TTC bus driver hit a crane, leaving one woman dead and 18 people injured. When police examined the scene of the accident, they found drugs in the driver’s bag.
When last have you heard that it’s allowed to bring drugs to work? It would be bad enough for office or factory workers to pack a lunch, a drink and some marijuana on the side, but bus drivers! It’s an accident waiting for a place to happen, and it did.
