Cuts coming to Environment Canada: reports
Reports are emerging that Environment Canada will soon announce a wave of job cuts that will eliminate hundreds of staff from the department. Environment Canada may be set to send nearly 800 employees out the door, including more than 200 scientists, meteorologists and engineers.
Green leader Elizabeth May says Ottawa is not providing enough details to allay concerns that Environment Canada may be harmed by the cutbacks. "There are too many questions and no good answers regarding this slashing of a critical government department," May said in a statement released Wednesday night.
The Toronto Star, meanwhile, is reporting that senior managers at Environment Canada have told union members that they do not have enough funding to pay for the employees on their payroll.
