Samson: "There are municipal workers who've lost their jobs - they just don't know it yet."

The vice-president of the City of Montreal executive committee says some of the municipal workers who stormed a council meeting last week have lost their jobs - they just don't know it yet.

In an interview with La Presse, Anie Samson vowed to fire the workers who disrupted the council meeting, threw paper around and splashed water on computers. She added that some may face criminal charges.

Samson says the police department has been putting a lot of effort into identifying the culprits, with officers working through the weekend.

The storming of the meeting was part of the union protest against the pension changes outlined in Bill 3.

    Mayor Coderre is doing exactly what he is supposed to do. He is leading - something this city sorely missed for too many years.
    I support him entirely in this matter.

    Why doesn't the union just come out and say it...gee, nice little town you got here,it would be a shame if something bad were to happen to it. It seems they've learned a lot from their mob buddies! I wish her the best of luck.

    Many towns and cities in North America require their municipal employees to live in that city-many of ours don't and thus pay no municipal taxes for our common good. Just saw a 102 bus go by covered with those blasted stickers, are they going to protest too.
