BREAKING NEWS: Canada Customs Union May Honour Stamper
The Windsor Square has learned exclusively that consideration is being given by the Customs and Immigration Union to hold a dinner in Windsor in honour of Dan Stamper, the President of the Ambassador Bridge Company.
CKLW reported this morning in an interview with MP Brian Masse that the VP of the Union was advised by the Minister involved, The Honourable Vic Toews, that he was reconsidering the cuts to Customs staff at the Windsor Border in light of the bomb threats made against the Bridge and the Tunnel.
This is obviously good news for everyone using the border crossings and companies that rely upon the smooth operation of the border for their economic well-being. It means, if the Minister carries through, that people will not lose their jobs as well.
One knows that there was outrage when the cuts were first announced by the Government. Clearly, nothing to date has changed the Government’s mind to reconsider the serious mistake that was being made. Until Dan Stamper issued his press release and set out this one sentence:
“We cannot confirm, but suspect, that this has something to do with Canada’s disinvestment at the border by cutting back on customs’ agents.”
The results speak for themselves.
While Jason McMichael, first national vice-president of the Customs and Immigration Union, at first condemned Stamper for his comments, he now understands that those comments may have accomplished more than anyone else has been able to achieve to protect the position of his Union members and to protect the public.
It is no wonder that a dinner may well be held in Stamper’s honour.
NOTE: I am sure that you have guessed that the dinner idea is nothing more than satire. However, the accomplishment of Stamper is real if theMinister follows through. Let’s hope he does for everyone’s sake.
