PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian June 24, 2019 CP conductor from Cranbrook, B.C., grieves request for substance testing After he was reinstated to his po- sition at Canadian Pacific Railway (CP), a conductor refused to sub- mit to substance testing, causing a lengthy delay. Bill Lind of Cranbrook, B.C., was terminated on Nov. 18, 2014, for "disrespectful and rude behav- iour" toward a fellow employee, submitting a false harassment claim against the same employee and booking off a sick day and be- ing seen operating heavy equip- ment later that day. Lind had worked for CP for 33 years before his dismissal. Edmonton nurse terminated after being accused of abusing elderly patient A NURSE was accused of abuse after she force- fully restrained a difficult elderly patient, which resulted in him screaming out in pain. Grenida Bravo, who worked as a registered nurse at the University of Alberta Hospital in Ed- monton since 2011, was employed on the neuro- geriatric unit as the designated charge nurse. During the day shift on March 3, 2018, Bravo worked with Mohamed Beltaifa and Rebecca Fairhurst. Fairhurst entered the room of an elderly man, identified as "Mr. D," who had suffered from a stroke and had language barriers. The pair administered a daily wash routine when Bravo entered. She began "pushing hard" on the patient's leg, testified Beltaifa, despite his contention that Bravo's assistance wasn't needed as the man cooperated with the wash procedure. The patient then began "yelping out in pain." Beltaifa twice told Bravo to let go before she finally did, he testified. LIBRARIES Town of Sundre Library Sundre, Alta.
