 CTF calls on Winnipeg firefighter's union to pay back president's salary

After it was discovered Winnipeg taxpayers are paying 70% of the salary of the president of the firefighter's union, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation called on the city to rescind the agreement that allowed it and then said the union should pay back the money. Alex Forrest who serves as president of the United Firefighters of Winnipeg earns over $116,000 annually.
