    "WHY?", Not chronic complainers, just a chronic waste of tax payers dollars keeping you all on the pay roll !! How much longer can the private sector go on with all these Continued tax hikes. Do we really need all these empoyees for a population of apprx. 130000!!

    You hit the nail on the head there Mary!!! Private sector employees must have better winter tires. It is about time gov. stopped wasting our hard earned money and leave half their pencil pushers home for good. They all seem to be such a privileged bunch!!

      Why is it a joke? Roads were getting bad by 4:00...and most staff are off at 4:00 except for front-line staff who have to stay until 5:00. Doesn't it make sense to send the remaining staff home before we have a bunch of people in the ditch? If it makes you feel any better, the govt. can use my tax dollars to send a few people home a bit early on a Friday...your tax dollars can go towards a study on chronic complainers who have nothing better to do than put inane comments on the Guardian site.

      The office I work in Charlottetown (non-government) was open until 5:30pm yesterday and then I drove home outside Charlottetown. You are right.. nothing but a JOKE closing these Government office when they do. Somebody is pulling the trigger way too early (as usual)...
