In case you missed the original article, here it is, but in essence, it’s about a Calgary contractor that has allegedly created a ton of chaos for a variety of clients, and is now facing charges by the city.

What sucks the most about this story and others of its ilk is that the general media only focuses on contractors when one of the industry’s rare bad seeds crosses the line, like in this situation. The vast majority of our readers are shining examples of all that is good about our industry, yet the disproportionate damage that one alleged dirtbag can do is so alarming.

We’d love to hear from our readers about how they combat this perception. Is it just white noise at this point, or do you still cringe when you hear about a contractor screwing his clients like this?
