    I think you would have to go all the way to the idiots who enacted the rules that says he could be fired for burning Koran pages. Firing the person who fired him might just mean there is a similar thread months or a year from now of that guy getting back pay and pain and suffering.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I want a job as a train conductor paying $80.000! I don't earn that as a RN.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Work a schedualed 32 hours a week and pick up an overtime shift once a week, while working evenging, midnights and weekends and you will earn more then that in Alberta

    There was no rule like that. Somebody used very poor judgement. A rule like that would be unconstitutional. Sometimes the right thing to do is to check with "legal." The guy who made the decision is prolly paid $175,000 a year so that he knows when he should check with legal. As usual, no one's accountable.
