HALIFAX, N.S. — The Hamm government of Nova Scotia is proposing replacing its 32 commercial vehicle inspectors with 12 RCMP constables.

The move makes little sense, and won’t save any money, said Joan Jessome, president of the Nova Scotia Government Employees Union at a news conference at the Kelly Lake scale near the Halifax airport yesterday.

The vehicle compliance officials work at five scale houses and 10 mobile units around the province.
