Ok, here is a question for you. The officers of the Toronto Police Force have gone on a "job action". They are considered a essential service, so they are not allowed to strike.

This quote is taken from the same article.

Toronto Police Association president Dave Wilson said after a meeting attended by close to half of his union members that public safety would not be jeopardized, and that the most obvious sign of their protest would be officers wearing baseball caps.

Asked if their first phase of job action, which started at midnight, would also include officers ignoring traffic violations, Mr. Wilson said that it was left to the individual officer. "We have, as officers, the right to exercise discretion," he told reporters.

Does this quote mean that they are going to hurt the city by not fining people for traffic violations. Way to hurt the city .. in the pocket book.
