Re: WJ calls in the Swat Team on Maskless Toddler

digits_ , I’m in the fence whether it was a poor PR move. The CEO is on record as saying zero tolerance. This cancellation will stick in the minds of the passengers that zero tolerance is exactly that. If you choose to create problems with mask usage, you will not win that fight. I have seen the ph...

Re: Crickets

True enough, no point in focusing on the negative, but don’t be blind to the reality of the situation either. I've found that a lot of the folks who initially didn't appreciate the gravity of the situation at first are now coming to the realization of the seriousness of where we are at. In one resp...

The policy (the one I posted above) says you can wear a beard, unless it's a functional requirement to shave - ie for wearing a chemical/nuclear/bio warfare mas operationally, or in training. That restriction should be temporary until no longer required:
Thanks for sharing and clarifying

Re: SFU facial hair study

Since we are on the subject of facial hair - I have often wondered how the RCAF handles the religious minorities such as Muslims and Sikhs who serve in our Armed Forces. Are they exempted from these regulations under a religious right to wear turbans, long hair, full beards, beards with no mustache...

Re: SFU facial hair study

Hi, would anyone have a copy of the actual study conducted by Simon Fraser University regarding facial hair and pilots? My co-worker calls beards “facial fungus” and is adamant that they’re unsafe and need to be banned from the workplace. SFU study busts myth about facial hair on pilots: https://ww...

Re: I would like your opinion?

The federal Crown Liability and Proceedings Act referred to does not prevent one from suing the federal government; it merely sets out the circumstances where a case can be brought and the procedure to be followed. Right... and if this isn’t a circumstance where a case can be brought (and it isn’t)...

Re: Fire the Transport minister

While I can't say I'm thrilled with every decision the current Minister has made, he generally seems more competent than the last 5(!) under the previous PM and the 2 under the previous short term Liberal PM. However, I think one of the biggest issues that comes is the huge disparity between service...

Definitely doable. There will be some challenges and he may require an individualized flight test demonstrating that he can perform safely but I know of both a fellow who had an arm amputated above the elbow and another who had his leg amputated above his knee who both had commercial flying privileg...

Re: Will Westjet survive?

So I'll just sit here, collecting my max CEWS while working another gig waiting for my eventual layoff and 16 weeks severance, while your cohorts sit on EI praying for that call back. Yup. Anti-Union. Your union is collecting union dues from members who are on CEWS! Scum. Complete Scum. A few clari...

Okay children, let’s get back on track. I’m not sure if it is as obvious to you as it is to me, but the laying off of the 3000 people was inevitable with the Onyx buyout. COVID 19 was only the perfectly timed excuse. Respectfully disagree. Pre-COVID the focus on On Time Performance and the expansio...

Of those 67% how many are on CEWS? You don't need a union for that. My favourite part of your response is your first paragraph. Typical WestJet pilot speak. Look at me. I sacrificed so much. I spent all this money. I worked so hard to get to this point in my career. Like you and your group were the...

Dude, you’re posting this on a forum which is populated (mostly) by pilots. They push the buttons, push the pedals, talk on the radio, set the parking brake and go home. Or to the hotel. Don't sell yourself short. Lots of people on here with interests, skills and education beyond button pushing. Th...
