Snow removal workers: not enough time or training?

QMI is alleging that at least some of the city’s snow removal workers are dangerous to the public because they aren’t properly trained and aren’t given enough time to do the job safely. They also allege it’s too easy to get hired.

Update: Other media are getting aboard this story: CTV reports on a journalist who was hired within five minutes and put behind the wheel immediately. He brought a hidden camera along. And CBC reports that contractors are now promising to do better training next season.

I feel a certain muted irony in that the same media that complain loudly about snow removal not happening fast enough are now kvetching about the firms hiring too fast.
