I couldn't hit this site at work for a couple of years while I was doing some DoD work.

Even gummint drones get to steal a little downtime, there's sometimes windows you can see out of and the odd opportunity to take the nose from the grindstone for a second.  Then there are coffee breaks and lunch.  At least, that's how it worked where I was. Maybe the Canadian government and civil service is different.

In my case it was university-owned; not government, and in no way was it a violation of law or university policy to web-surf, but in that particular environment, they did control the scope of those sites due to the sensitive nature of some of the work which included PII that went on in that building.
Like work in the private sector (where I spent most of my career) the focus was more on getting the job done and done properly; less on onerous or officious taskmastering.

Aside from the military, I do not see government workers as being overworked.  I am perturbed, as one of their employers at great cost to my lifestyle, that many of them get up to 10 paid holidays while most in the private sector only get 5.  I could go on and on, such as discussing how unfounded liabilities of state workers benefits and retirement have bankrupted California’s, but life is too short.

I see. Sorry to hear that your lifestyle has been so negatively impaired.
I can't speak to that, as I have never worked for the gov't or the State of California.
