After his request for a vacation leave was denied, a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) workcar operator phoned his supervisor and berated him, triggering his dismissal.

Laurence Dunphy had worked for the TTC since 1998 when on Feb. 28, 2016, he texted his supervisor, Jason Radeska,  to request the next two days off (Feb. 28 and 29) under the single-day vacation (SDV) policy.

However, the request was refused for the second night as Dunphy had been booked for first-aid training.
