Re: Protest to save Canadian aviation

I understand but most airline management are happy about our protests. So are the industry associations like NACC and ATAC and CAC

I fail to see why Air Canada would be any different. Everything I read from Calin Rovinescu is perfectly aligned with the demands that we have.

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

If the banks say no... why on gods good earth should the taxpayer say yes!? Because all banks will say no to all airlines and most airlines will fail. Because then all other companies that lived off the airlines will either fail or raise the price of their services by 75%. Some of these will includ...

Re: March to Save Canadian Aviation

So why would Canadian airlines be expected to refund when they received ZERO financial aid from the Government ? Because they were unable to deliver the service they sold? The same reason that if I bought a TV from a store and then the TV was undeliverable I would expect a refund. You want the gove...

Four MPs came out to meet us and talked to us, a fifth sent his Chief of Staff to meet us. I marched with Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge, Westjet, Sunwing, Porter, ...
