Yes many hold down second jobs. Many do so out of necessity. Define many many earning well over 100k. Do you have a source for this information?

In 2011 93 front-line Hamilton Firefighters earned over $100,000. Source: http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/publications...

The year before? 215 Front-line Hamilton firefighters earned over $100,000. Source: http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/publications...

Anyway, according to the OMBI data, we are spending more money but receiving worse service than the median municipalities. This would seem to indicate to me that throwing more money to buy more resources is not the fix.

On another note, how do the first response zones line up with the wards? If station 1 and station 9 cover a bunch of ward 3 then this whole discussion is moot. I think that is a critical piece of information being left out of this discussion.
