Re: Hernia

Hi there. I've been unfortunate enough to have had two. My first was a left inguinal in 1992 and more recently, a right side inguinal in 2007. Both were corrected/repaired with open surgery with a recovery period of six weeks. They can be repaired by laparoscopic surgery which is said to reduce reco...

Re: Who else enjoys the opposition making an ass of themselves?

O.k Icebound. My comments were not to rewrite history. Macdonald was a "Conservative" and not a "Liberal," but he was a liberal minded politician (federalist). As a matter of historical context, liberals of 140+ years ago have actually evolved their idiologies. However, I have not erred by quoting M...

Re: Who else enjoys the opposition making an ass of themselves?

The Governor General has two choiced after a vote of non confidence: ask the opposition majority if they can successfully govern (that IS the question) or call an election. It is important to remember that in the Canadain parliamentary system no one has the "right" to govern; they are ask to form a ...

Or a commercial license? So I guess the question is, where does it end? I know it starts with being able to work for reward. That is the "commercial license." If I want to fly anything with more than one engine, I need a multi-engine endorsement to go with that license. Since most types of advanced ...

Hmmm. I have given this some thought. If the Canadian Press can write a story about "deadbeat pilots," are we not entitled to a rebuttal? I mean grouping pilots with deadbeat dads is a little on the dramatic side. How about; "Deadbeats at Transport Canada billing starving pilots for phantom service."

PILOTS NOT PAYING THEIR BILLS

By CP OTTAWA -- Deadbeat pilots who don't pay their bills are gumming up the works at Transport Canada. Last year, about 12,000 pilots had not paid the mandatory $55 fee for medical certificates they received from the department, says an internal audit. Some owe for more than one certificate. Altoge...

I don't think that training bonds (contracts) are a bad deal; although their fainess depends on their length and pay scale. However, money of front aka Jetsco is criminal and undermines the position of pilots as a whole. (Not to slam former Jetsco guys - desparate times call for desparate measures.)...
