Re: Hiring quotas - continued

Right, I'm going in circles, no new info or responses to other people's arguments in my posts, just the same thing over and over from me. Sorry opp2, but your bias is showing.

Re: Hiring quotas - continued

Billygoat, I've worked with more incompetent white officers than I have incompetent minority officers. Mainly because I can count on 3 fingers the amount of minority officers in my surrounding detachment area. You don't seem interested in discussing that, you're fixated on this quoata system that y...

Re: Hiring quotas - continued

People get hired or not on many different reasons. The biggest one is, does the recruiter like the person sitting in front of them, do they believe him/her would make a good officer and they ask themselves CAN I sit in a patrol car for a shift with this person. You can look great on paper but if yo...

Re: Hiring quotas - continued

So what you are stating is that by hiring an Asian Individual who is obviouslly qualified with his MBA degree who may possibly not be the most proficient at the english language due to immigrating to Canada a short few years ago is lowering Standards? Depends on the job. Call me coco bananas, but w...

Re: Upcoming Ontario vote/referendum

I agree with this, but if you see the math above in theory more MPP's means smaller ridings and greater accessibility. I enjoy living in a City outside of Toronto where I can call my City Councilor and get a personal return call within 24hrs. No, that's not how I understand it at all. The total num...

Re: Hiring quotas - continued

I would argue the monitors closed down the thread because it really wasn't moving any discussion forward. No, I think there were new perspectives coming into that thread. Who decides a thread "isn't moving forward", or that that's even a valid reason for locking a thread? There are all ki...

Re: Hiring quotas - continued

I am actually very happy there are "Employment Equity" put in place in many police services. You have to understand that many visible minorities come from different countries leaving a heap of wealth and opportunities from their home countries to pursue greater in Canada. Unfortuntaly, fo...

Re: Hiring quotas - continued

First of all, discussing a topic in and of itself is not "whining". Second of all, it's an important issue that many people want to discuss. The last thread had many people posting about it. It's an issue which touches upon some fundamental aspects of our values as a society. And it's an i...

Re: Upcoming Ontario vote/referendum

I'll give it a shot. Politics doesn't seem to be a popular topic here, for some reason... FPTP: + You vote for a representative for your specific riding + Parties generally must achieve broad (ie. province wide) support to have a chance at winning seats + More likely to produce stable majority gove...

Hiring quotas - continued

I have no idea why the previous thread on this topic was locked. There was one thing I wanted to add. If indeed employers set aside a set number of positions for different categories - categories defined by race & gender - then that by definition means there are quotas. Now one may try to justif...

Re: US Police officer threatens driver on video

Goes to show the importance of keeping your cool when dealing with an arrogant snot. There are a variety of ways of cooly dealing with such assholes without falling into the trap of ranting like a silly bufoon. Was the officer really a sergeant? Yeesh! You wouldn't expect that type of behaviour from...
