The chief noticed the firehall's windows were freshly painted with Habs colours. Soon after the incident, Vincent learned he would likely be demoted for having "vandalized" public property.
Thursday, the city of Montreal officially approved the disciplinary action.
The Montreal firefgighters' union is appealing the decision before an arbitrator, even though Vincent has since retired. For François Rosa, a union representative across town at Station 5, it's a matter of principle
This is insanity, it cannot be possible how stupid people are, you're going to punish a guy who puts his life on the line for some **** wage of like 30k a year and dock his pay by 12k over a ****ing HABS paint job? COME ON!!! These guys live in these fire stations practically, give them a god damn ****ing break.
Wow, the world is a sad and pathetic little place it seems.
