A worker for the Calgary roads department was promptly terminated after he apparently showed the wrong photograph directly to his boss via his cellphone.

Norman Mossman had worked as driver/operator/labourer for the roads department. He was first hired as a seasonal employee in 1988 and became a full-time employee in 2001.

In the roads department, there were about 425 employees and only 16 were female, according to district manager Rick Billington. Mossman’s foreman was a woman, who was identified as “AB” during the arbitration hearing.
