Re: Cancer patients struggle with gauntlet, Oct. 16.
Can’t do anything about the smoking at the BC Cancer Agency’s Fraser Valley Centre in North Surrey? Are they serious?
There is one obvious step that can, and should, be taken. It involves the cancer agency employee, “Ken.” Give him a written warning, stating that since he is self-admittedly aware that his smoking is strictly against the rules, he must stop immediately, and that failure to do so will result in dismissal with cause. Then, should he continue to smoke on the cancer agency’s property, terminate him for failure to comply with the conditions of his employment and failure to comply with the written request.
The stupidity of smoking at a cancer agency, of all places, should be mentioned, but probably would be tacitly understood by all readers.
