I created Ernie the Electrician because electricians do have very important jobs in Canada. He is part of my new series of characters in the Canadian Trades/Professions stories I am writing.
To become an electrician, Ernie had to be licensed. Ernie has a very important responsibility to himself and any of the clients he works with. Being an electrician means that safety is of the utmost importance. There is no room for errors and everything they do must meet code and regulations.
I want my characters in this series to represent the human qualities as well as the professional qualities. Ernie is no different. He shows his human aide by having a short temper. When this does happen, Ernie will apologize.
