How is a whole thread deleted that had no names and was based on publicly available information. Seems like some executives have some thin skin or are trying to hide something that everyone already knows (it’s the talk of the entire office). Or maybe they lack integrity, the respect of free speech and don’t care about safety, the person who got the DUI clearly doesn’t.

I've been on the site for a while now and here is my observation on what kind of posts mods/admins delete:
Foul language (a big no-no)
Anything that has personal info
Using names excluding public figures like PR, Comms, Board and C-Level)
Unsupported negative posts (e.g., you will all be laid off, ford engineers are not competent, etc)
Trolling (they axe this sometimes, I've seen some troll posts survive but they typically nix it)
References to violence and sgurd (read this in reverse, I don't want to be tagged as pitching it here, merely trying to avoid being blocked)
This doesnt surprise me that an Enbridge Gas director is arrested. I don't know how they handle this in other Enbridges areas but my directors and above are all clowns. Hoping to get packaged so I dont deal with these clowns when something real happens. the drunk director will be gone but all the ones stayin and Vps don't have any experience and might as well be drunk. My director sent out an email by his old HR boss saying how he has experience in operations. he lies. this clown show s---s and is nothing like the old Consumers Gas where Vps and directors know something .
@1okg, site admins nuke all names, except c-suits.
Hmmmm! The Million Dollar Man. Charged with driving while intoxicated.
Everyone knows his name anyway.
How would The Layoff know the name of the director or whatever was listed. The only reason that holds water is that Enbridge complained and had it removed or the director himself complained. Both seem really weak reasons to mess with this discussion.
Again I must comment on this as to the difference between the US and Canada. In Canada due to our employment laws you cannot simply fire someone for this ( unless you compensate them as if you laid them off and give them the legal severance for years of service ). It has nothing to do with Enbridge favouring one country or another. You have to get off that opinion as it is not true. Believe me if Enbridge could apply policies the same on both sides of the border they would. It would save lots of money.
One of the comments made was posted by someone who used the name of the director involved.
If you don’t want your name dragged through the mud it would be a good idea to not drink & drive. Someone can never give a safety moment again and be taken seriously that’s for sure.
Personally identifiable data is not allowed here (so everything that pinpoints to a particular individual will probably be nuked). Sounds reasonable, think no one here would like seeing his/hers name dragged through the mud.
If this director was a US employee, manager level or below, they would have already been fired. That they haven't been let go, or suspended pending legal outcome, speaks volumes about the difference between how Enbridge values US vs. Canadian employees. I guess I never realizied that being Canadian makes you a protected class within Enbridge.
Integrity safety respect doesn’t apply anymore. The company is circling the drain under Al. All ethics are out the window.
I followed every post in the thread that was removed and didn’t see anything that would contravene the rules. In fact, I found many of the posts to be extremely informative about the repercussions of drinking and driving in the U.S. and Canada. (I did notice that, in an earlier post, the poster actually named the director in Ontario who was caught driving drunk, and that TheLayoff.com justifiably removed that thread).
I don’t know if TheLayoff.com decided on its own to remove this most recent thread, or whether Enbridge officials threw their weight behind the decision.
Regardless, I have lost respect for this site. Does anyone know if there are other, similar sites out there that I could switch to?
I’d love to know which of these rules it broke?
