Stinky roads bad for mechanics

Stinky roads bad for mechanics

Postby maryjane48 » Sep 13th, 2017, 8:37 pm

Roadside mechanics in Valemount, B.C., are tired of having to deal with human waste on the side of the highway as they try to do their job.

"It's just really disgusting," said Travis Wied, the owner of Travis Auto in the Robson Valley community.

"The last time I smelled anything that bad was when I was 13 years old and went to Tijuana."

Toilets at rest stops were largely eliminated by the Christy Liberals as a way of saving a few dollars. And the contracts for pumping out the remaining ones? Never renewed. Just let them overflow and people will stop using them. This provinces roadside rest areas, at least the ones outside NATIONAL parks, are some of the worst.

WSBC may not have jurisdiction but the employee can still exercise their right to refuse unsafe work and push the employer to come up with something, even if it is just PPE
