No former employees paid on Friday when due.  Peter Whitaker says to call the labour board.  Building owner (AJ Lamba) refuses to pay or return emails or calls.  Etobicoke owners  (Pannu's)will not clear the debt.  at least five or six former employees no way to get paid and let go with no notice.  They are playing with peoples livelihoods.  very disgusting all around.  they don't deserve to be in business.  Scammers.

Good people let go last Friday - no word that it was last day until AFTER they all went to air.  Saw it coming though.  Staff employed under Peter Whitaker were not paid on time - at times leaving Mon-Fri staff unpaid for up to a month at a time.  Illegal?!!!  Not a single partial owner of station (many) would take responsibility to pay staff - leaving people to not be able to pay bills/mortgage/put food ontable.  These were people who worked hard under VERY toxic situation- were even locked OUT of Port Credit studio two times when bills/rent not paid.  Then end of DEC inept Whitaker in desperation and no $ took on business partner who is also owner of buiding the station was in.  Building owner pulled out of station last Tues-forcing staff to work out of one of the other co--owners studio in Etobicoke - NOT even in Peel.  Assuming there is no cash left to build another studio in Peel REgion. Whitaker lied and lied to staff about paying them on time in full regularly. Suspect past in his SHADY business dealings.  Any employer who leaves staff unpaid, lies to thier face and does not honor financial committments is a fraud/con artist IMHOP.  Because so many people had part ownership of station they all past the buck around leaving staff scared SUPER stressed.  Those still on station website all paid/brought in by Etobicoke owner.  They still have their jobs and were paid on time and treated fairly.  Those under Whitaker who took the abuse and came in everyday all fired with no notice.  They do not even KNOW if they will be paid for past two weeks of work.  Whitaker refusing to pay and building owner refusing to pay.  Third owner who still operating station.says not thier responsibilty.  Everyone let go who should recieve paychecks this Friday do not know if they will be paid this Friday.  Imagine the stress and being used like that!  Mike Richards (who is great) will continue it seems - but his show is self contained with own sales team. I could go
