Being rude to reporters on the street looks ugly, but is hardly reason to fire someone.

Treating your workers under you badly/unfairly, costing the state lots of money for your salary above docs, nurses, and other health care personnel that lots of AB citizens benefit directly from, or refusing to answer complicated questions all together sure are. As is provably poor job performance for all kinds of reasons.

You can't just go around knee-jerk firing people "because you don't like them" or they are "rude." If they turn away customers because they are so rude, then that would reflect on their job performance I'd think.

I don't really blame the guy for not answering questions on the street at random. His excuse is lousy though, and poorly thought out. Saying "I can't answer that this minute on the street without having everything in front of me" is okay though. As is saying nothing. Or saying: "I have to get to a meeting or whatever."

I think people's attention spans in the modern world are getting increasingly short. The bad economy and people being desperate/angry with short attention spans and not planning ahead doesn't help. How can I be expected to know what is worn out on a 20-30 year old car without looking at it, which takes time, which the customer has to pay for (or someone somewhere does) off the top of my head on the street at random just as a similar example? I have nothing in front of me to help answer the question.

I'm not defending or opposing anyone here.

I will say, someone who has to be a public face and justify their actions to the state who does so that way, that is an insight into their character, and probably the tip of the iceberg.

Just on the outside looking in...

And apparently now so is Dr. Stephen Duckett.

I agree James it's no reason to fire someone, this is purely political as the governing party (Progressive Conservatives) is using this as a diversion from their own pathetic performance running this province. I predicted that Duckett would get canned with the next 2 years prior to our next provincial election as a political move to deflect criticism of the government, the cookie incident just made it happen sooner.
