Re: “Black firefighters file human rights complaint

I just want a job as a firefighter with Halifax Fire. Growing up, its what I always wanted to do. My Dad was a firefighter, and so was his dad, (my grandfather). I have two uncles and three cousins who are all members of the IAFF, throughout North America. When I moved to Halifax as a young man, I fell if love. I met some firefighters and decided it was my time.

Again, all I want to do is become a firefighter. And Halifax is my first choice. I want to become servce my time, become a rookie, or a Snot, as they say in Halifax. I want to earn my spot, buy the pizza if I work overtime, drive the big trucks, safe lives, hero stuff, put in 25-30 years and get a pension, AND I want toEARN the RESPECT of my fellow brothers and sister. It shouldn't matter what color, race or sex I am. As long as I can drag my partner out of a building, or start a chain saw, or do the damn job thats required. Especially now a days where there are less firefighters on the trucks, everyone has to step up there game.

As far as the BS that is going on, between managament and the firefigheters, thats just normal everyday stuff. Why are we hearing about now, probably becasue one or two firefighters are bitter and have a chip ont ther shoulders and are taking it out against the world. I would like to clarify that that previous statement was not directed at any designated group, becase there are many complainers out there, regardless of color, race or sex.

PS please hire me, I am a human being. (Color, race and sex is between me and Halifax Fire's Human Resource Dept.). Thank you.
