Recent comments hint that all is not “sweetness and light” at the Ontario (Canada) Professional Firefighters Association (OPFFA).
The OPFFA apparently sued two members over their private work on behalf of workers comp claimants only to be counter-sued for $12m.
Ellard Beaven Writes:
“…How did the OPFFA enter into a lawsuit against Paul and Colin without it being brought to the convention floor? The OPFFA executive under Carmenâ€™s leadership voted to sue and announce it at seminar and now have been counter sued for12 million. So this June they will probably ask for more money for an unconstitutional lawsuit and if we lose the OPFFA will be bankrupt. I remember when the OPFFA was a proud and honest organization that never had their integrity in questionâ€¦ What happened???”
From “I know a crook”
“Ellard, I can answer your questionâ€¦â€¦.Carmen is a CROOK, not only in Oakville when he was the president but in the OPFFAâ€¦..the problem is the OPFFA is full of wannabe leadersâ€¦â€¦.OPFFA locals are sheepâ€¦â€¦following the leaders off the cliff. If you ask meâ€¦.in 5 years there will be no OPFFAâ€¦..more locals are looking to LEAVEâ€¦!!!”

From “Frank Local 3888”
“Hey Frank, Runmymouthoff â€¦..worry about your own glass house local before throwing imaginary stonesâ€¦..ya we know you are a Wannabe IAFF guyâ€¦â€¦.but you have a long line in front of youâ€¦.take a number and hold onâ€¦..Once F.L and C.S are kicked aside â€¦..maybe you move up to number 314â€¦â€¦good luck!”
