Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
board of referees  right to be heard  language to be used 


There is no evidence to suggest that the Board was biased because its members understood the French language. The claimant's proposition that only a unilingual Board or Umpire would be capable of rendering an unbiased judgment in his case is obviously untenable.

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
voluntarily leaving employment  working conditions  dangerous 


The safety concerns (climbing 160 feet towers) described by claimant do not amount to just cause unless it can be shown that, having regard to the circumstances, he took the steps required to attempt to resolve the problem prior to quitting. No attempt of any sort was made to alleviate his concerns.
