Re: Bearskin (JV) pulls out of YKF/YOW

Word around YOW today was that a meeting was scheduled to happen in YXL tonight, it was suggested that the topic was going to be the announcement of the closure of that base as well.

Re: Bearskin (JV) pulls out of YKF/YOW

I hear they have some obstacles to over come before they can start running the metros on gravel in the north, a performance issue prohibiting their ability to operate them under 704 regs, my understanding is they have to operate them under 703 regs thus limiting the traffic loads to 9 passengers.

My sources tell me the aircraft will be running pax routes in NWO for a short period under the current color scheme and then early 2013 the aircraft will be retro-fitted for geo-survey work and leased to a well known aviation family residing in the YYZ area. The aircraft and crew will be operating u...

Re: CYKF Notam around RIM / Blackberry

You have implied I'm ignorant of the fact that she is also the Queen of Canada, big leap...My humblest apologies to the protocol officer, however the fact remains she is still the Queen of England and she is touring the RIM facility.

Would you have been so smug if I had just typed "The Queen"?

Re: The times, they are a changing in the Arctic

I worked in places and for outfits that the food mail scenario didn’t work or happen as well. There are a number of catches to the program, there are identified “entry points” for food mail and “air stage” points. Meaning that the airport you work at might not be an entry point for food mail, as wel...

Re: The times, they are a changing in the Arctic

First the food mail program has been running for more than 20 years, as far as airlines raising rates. They already get whatever they tendered when the mail contract was tendered. It's whomever is paying for the goods that benefits from the subsidy. If the air carrier quoted a price of $1.50 per kg ...

Re: The times, they are a changing in the Arctic

No I wouldn’t call it a sensitive subject for me; it just bothers me to see uninformed stereotypes perpetuated. On a personal level I think that the food mail program was and is a good idea. In a nutshell the idea is to subsidize the shipping costs of healthier choices into remote communities. The g...

Perhaps you should have a little knowledge about the topic before you post uninformed comments. Neither of the items you folks have suggested are eligible for the food mail shipping cost subsidy.

Judges get days, if not weeks to listen to witnesses, defendants, lawyers and the like spin their version of the story before he/she has to make a call one way or the other. The cop often gets seconds to the make the call.
