His pickup truck contained two scantily clad female mannequins in the open cargo area while one side of the truck had five home-made signs, and another large piece of mat board containing approximately 30 pictures of workers not wearing safety equipment on various sites, including two bikini top wearing females. He has spent the past four years protesting the lack of mandatory safety regulations being applied on construction sites in Alberta, mainly the housing industry, by home builders and Occupational Health and Safety, and he has paid dearly for it. “I went to court and I have injunctions that say I can no longer take photos, go near the construction sites, and I can’t say any names,” said Hunter, who couldn’t even reveal in which town or community he resided in. “This has gone on for four years, and it could go on for another four years. I am being sued by a home builder in Calgary, who is also the same home builder in Cochrane. I have 5000 photos of workers who are not wearing any safety protection at all. I have witnessed guys falling off a roof. This guy (picture of a worker falling off a roof) went to the hospital and the home builder did not report it. I asked OHS and I was told they cannot be fined if they don’t report it. OHS is not enforcing anything.” “What they said in court is that Darren hired actors and put them on the roofs,” Hunter claimed. “The lawyers said that taking photos of these roofers were endangering their lives.
