Re: Potential Airline Bailout

I don’t know why they’re calling it a bailout when it’s a loan, but long overdue and very welcome for both the airlines and passengers. Now if they could manage an intelligent testing protocol that would allow operators to conduct their business we’ll really be getting somewhere. Yes, positive news...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

JT did a bachelor of art in literature at McGill, then a bachelor of education at UBC. When he finished two degrees, he started out as a substitute teacher, like most teachers, that's the entry level position. It happens that as the more junior on the sub list, he was called mostly for drama classe...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

Hey Mach1.

Your raised some interesting points no doubt, decent commentary actually and you kept it civil.

Let’s settle on a zero-sum game, JT gets under your skin like Harper got under my skin pre 2015.

Cheers mate.

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

Appears to be a policy document from 2018, a year before the 2019 election which I assume this paper was the basis of their(CPC) campaign. To be fair the CPC has a new leader and no doubt there will be policy revisions which could present internal problems for O’Toole aka vocal and dedicated social ...

Well since there is plenty of copy and paste, here is another view to add to the commentary.

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

You liberal hacks are something else. O’Toole was in the military, and is a lawyer. Trudeau is a drama teacher. You’re quoting the Toronto Star while the Financial Post flat out called Trudeau a despot. If you’re not in the airline industry, I suggest you stay in the kiddie box, aka General Aviatio...

Re: Flair Summer Expansion

Lowest costs win that battle. You’re certain that Swoop has the lowest costs? I’d be surprised if the airline within an airline model that’s failed at many places before will come out ahead regardless of how all in they go. No deepest pockets win the battle. I personally believe that choice is good...

Re: Mandatory PCR Test and 3 Day Hotel Quarantine

The deniers are forgetting, again. It is not about deaths, or how it affects those under 40, or anything like that, it is about not overwhelming the health system with those that DO get very ill. It is not a difficult concept. No government in the world WANTS to tank aviation or anything else in th...

In this part of the country, he is not generally respected, and he has, himself, said some very questionable things. Mayb...
