Ha! Thrifty's is not union. Even with union, my every keystroke is tracked at work (digital equivalent of a camara on me) My union knows this, and trust me management isn't saying its to prevent robberies, they tell you the exact reason why in orientation.

Go back and re read my first post on this subject. You're arguing points I never made. The topic was CCTV cameras. I already stated that workers in a public space have a reduced expectation of privacy, but you're still going on about the cashier thing.

Anyway, here's a good article on the subject.


"Generally speaking, Canadian courts have not looked favourably on employers who install surveillance cameras to spy on employees without good reason."

It depends on a lot of things. I have personally been involved in several cases where we have terminated employees (in a union environment) with cause using camera footage that proved theft.

Generally, if an employee works in a public space (i.e. retail) there is no general expectation of privacy and you can use surveillance footage. But you have to have cause. You can't just pick on somebody and watch them or monitor your employees for the hell of it. Everybody has an expectation of some privacy.

And generally the surveillance cameras can't be there just to monitor employees. Like you can't put a CCTV camera over Jonny's desk because you want to watch him spin around in his chair and tweet all day. They have to be installed under the guise of protecting assets, preventing theft, etc.

Thanks for clarifying that, I had heard something different many years ago.  So basically the public store area is fine, but the storeroom isn't.


As to the last paragraph I don't see any difference between stealing from the cash register or spin around in his chair

Any of the new winter shows/returns catch anyone's interest? I've mostly just been watching reruns and Netflix stuff lately.

This is the garbage thread, no?

I watch Seal Team every week. Get my Boreanaz fix. Also, just about finished the Idris Elba show “In the Long Run”. Great stuff. One of these shows is garbage, one is not.

I watched 60 Minutes last week and they had a guy on there that has developed an economical way to get cellulose out of plants with which he can and does make plant based plastic that can be programmed to decay within days or last for years. You can use it for fuel, sugar, and a bunch of other things as well.

A bunch of very knowledgeable folks on the program said that this could replace 20% - 30% of fossil fuels in the future.

Does anyone know if CRD is recycling all items they collect with the China ban?

I doubt you will ever get a straight answer to that question.

Apparently yes. Dig into the CRD archives for Oct/Nov last year. There was a staff report that said that because our recycling is relatively clean, we still have a market.
