As Toronto Fire tries to encourage women to join their brigade, two male firefighters have been suspended over sexist tweets.

    No different then the way the Military operates - whether in uniform or not, you are representing an organization who relies on trust of the public, respect, etc. When you sign up for the Military, you agree to act appropriately whether in or out of uniform...I think the same would apply to police, firefighters, etc.

    Frank Ramagano's comment is a bit alarming. There is no "context" that it would be appropriate to suggest hitting a woman or any other sexist or defaming comment. Rather surprised that the Secretary-Treasurer thinks that there may be. Perhaps he should also attend some additional sensitivity training.
