A Canada Post employee was suspended without pay after he delivered a barrage of insults to coworkers and supervisors.

Calgary-based Len Popoff was suspended for two days on June 6, 2012, following two days of "inappropriate comments and aggressive behavior."

On May 29, 2012, Popoff approached a coworker — identified as Mr. Szeto — and began swearing at him. Popoff was angry, Szeto testified, because he had spoken to a supervisor about Popoff’s parking.
