Bivouac West?

Post by Hugo Pants » Thu Oct 01, 2009 11:46 am

Wondering if they are still around, their website talks about hiring for the 2008 season (Jan 20th... I think that didn't happen) and the number for Roland Emery is out of service. Thanks!

i see from the BCTS site that roland picked up a decent chunk of work out of port macneil next year. i gotta say i like seeing it go to him alot more than some of the other names that were on that list.

I heard a strange rumor that Roland fired his entire crew after the end of year party. Something sounds odd about this rumor. Anybody have details?

That sounds like a highly suspect rumour. How can a company fire people after the end of the year party? I mean, the end of the year is the end of the year, there's no more work and people get laid off, that's the way it works. If you fire someone, it implies you are kicking them out of a job that still exists after they are gone, which cannot be the case at the end of the year.

Strange rumour indeed! Someone obviously relishes gossip. It is a highly exaggerated rumour. Some changes were made resulting from foolish and destructive actions by few highly intoxicated individuals post season. It is a private matter and not fodder for a public debate. I hope this satisfy your curiosity.
