Yes people are kicked out, fired, quit, whatever. It happens.
A lot of people have been fired for cheating on tests/exams -- and rightfully so.
"The province will move to trim OPP overtime costs by $3.5 million a year over the next three years and delay a plan to replace police cruisers."
Better than seeing "limiting the number of new hires for this year"
Good luck to everyone waiting for a call!
"The government is hiring 100 civilian staff for data-entry functions that are currently carried out by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). This initiative will achieve efficiencies within the OPP and enable the equivalent of up to 250 OPP officers to better use their time for front-line policing services."
"In particular, the Province is proposing a mechanism whereby the issuance or renewal of vehicle licence plates would be refused for unpaid POA fines related to the operation of vehicles. As well, the Province is proposing a mechanism whereby unpaid POA fines would be set off against tax refunds issued by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)."
The 2011 Budget announced the closure of underutilized prisons in Owen Sound, Walkerton and Sarnia, and the partial closure of Toronto West Detention Centre.
In this Budget, the government is moving ahead with fully closing the Toronto West Detention Centre, as well as the closure of the Brantford and Chatham jails. This plan will help modernize Ontario’s correctional facilities and achieve greater efficiencies. Full closure of the Toronto West Detention Centre will achieve additional savings of $23 million in 2013–14 and $28 million in 2014–15."

I was really hoping for an opportunity to discuss my achievements, but it'll have to wait another year. Not sure what to work on next, but I have plenty of time to figure it out.
That is disappointing. How far did you make it last year?
