  • If I had to tell some fat Budwieser swilling american from Wisconsin that I was confiscating the fish he caught and illegally cleaned. I wouldn't want him knowing my name either.
  • Next they'll be told they can't wear tuques or say 'eh'

    /what's that aboot
  • So they have 1374 badges that say Gordon?
  • The_Sponge: Solution:

    I was thinking more along the lines of "Friend," "Buddy," "Pal," and "Guy."

    From TFA:

    Hladun said the officers already wear tags that show their five-digit identification numbers.

    They can't be held accountable how?

    Transposing a number is a lot easier than confusing Johnson with Kweli.
  • Or it could be Habib. Habib. Habib.
  • Much better than the last time they walked off the job. Like, who gets maple syrup as a bonus anyway? it's not like it grows on trees...

    LOL and LOL.
  • BSABSVR: Cops hate being held accountable.


    That has nothing to do with it, they've always worn a tag, just one with a badge number instead of their name.

    "Hang on officer, I'm just trying to find some pen and paper to write down your 5 digit ID number. Oh, I have to go to secondary inspection now? But why?"
  • These are the Daves I know I know, these are the Daves I know. Dave the border agent, I really don't know him...

  • On the one hand you laugh at Canada all the time anytime anything even remotely funny about how farked up Canada is, yet progressives see that as their dream for us to be Canada.

    Is it really that hard to remember a 5 digit number?
  • I've been told at more than one job that is customer facing to not give out my last name. I always thought it was a sound policy when dealing with the public. I'm not sure I'd walk out of a job because of it but would I not be pleased about it. Honestly I'd probably scratch it off the badge or something similar and keep on keepin' on.
  • FTA: "Personalized name tags reflect our commitment to service excellence and reinforce the professionalism and integrity for which CBSA officers are known," the agency stated in a release.

    In light of that BS, everyone involved in this is wrong
  • The union representing the border agents argues that being forced to wear a name tag, with officers' last names displayed, potentially opens them up to retaliation from angry drivers.

    Well as a peon wearing a nametag, I don't want my last name displayed either. But aren't these guys that sign the paperwork "Officer Henderson" or "J. Lastname" or whatever anyway?

    For some people, yes. Furthermore, I'm guessing that someone who would want to ID a particular officer would likely be distracted by other things at that moment and wouldn't be particularly adept at memorization exercises.
  • Marianne Hladun, the union's regional vice-president for the Prairies, says some of the officers don't feel safe having their last names on their name tags.

    "There's no reason to put a name tag on an officer, which then puts not only them, but their families, at risk," she told CBC News.


    If you're doing something at a border crossing that puts your families at risk....then not having your name on a name tag isn't really going to protect them, dummies.

    Seriously. Making a driver mad because you cited him for a cracked taillight isn't something he's going to retaliate for; and any drug smuggler who wants to get you won't need a silly name tag to find out where you live and blow up your house.
  • Badges, eh
    We don't have to wear no stinkin badges.
  • BSABSVR: Cops hate being held accountable.


    Exactly. I don't care if the cops use real names on their tags. I care that the cop can be identified later.

    It's too easy to make an error and even if you get it right the cop can create reasonable doubt by saying you got it wrong.
