Re: Mandatory PCR Test and 3 Day Hotel Quarantine

The 2.4 million who have died of something so far... with so many Covid deaths being misrepresented worldwide, and the seasonal flu miraculously disappearing for the first year in recorded history, I'd take those numbers with many grains of salt. Just to clarify something on the seasonal flu disapp...

I will add that I wear contacts/glasses with greater then 3 diopters correction. No issues for the last 20 years.

Re: Israel vaccine impact so far.

Couple of points. Israel is at 65% (now) doses administered per 100 people. Some of those doses are going into people for their second shot. Only 40% ish of people have received 1 dose. The vaccine requires 2 shots. And it is a few weeks after the second shot before efficacy has been demonstrated. 2...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

Of course the political statements are that. That's what Canadians want to hear. With sealed contracts the truth can't come out in black and white and bite them, but with the past timeline clearly in view we can see what they are saying is not true. Not to mention the stats on world vaccination rat...

Re: Trudeu Bans All Cruise Ships From Canada Until Next Year

It does say in an article I read, that they can rescind the order if the situation improves. :roll: That may be true, but making an announcement that bans any COVID-related activity for an entire year will prevent cruiselines from selling tickets. For example, with the airline restrictions to Mexic...

Re: FL430 for commercial airliners

I’m always confused by some posts where it seems like the author doesn’t care if what they post is accurate. They just take their best guess. The rule in the US changed last year.

Re: FL430 for commercial airliners

Apologies guys. I cast too wide of a net on my previous post. It was in reference to Rockie’s “I’m sure in the US it is the same” remark. Which is about as good as “I don’t know”. And Rockie, why should I have taken 3 min? Was my reference incorrect? Is part 121 not commercial air carrier regulation...

Re: Air Canada / Westjet cut service to sun destinations and additional quarantine measures announced

You really can’t see why people hate Trudeau as an individual? Regardless of politics? Okay :roll: FFS No, I can't really see why people hate Trudeau as an individual. Hate is a very strong emotion that none of the people mentioned have earned. The hate comes from being indoctrinated into it by ech...

Okay. :roll: FFS. First off, you claim hatred. And you assume that hatred comes from some distaste of the person himself. Not policy or performance. Claims you can’t substantiate in the general sense you use them. Not everyone would use the world hate, but some might. And I could see why. So I’ll re...

While I am not a huge Trudeau fan myself I understand that Avcanada is the true definition of a peanut gallery, and not one of us here is privy to the negotiations or the tiniest fraction of the information driving government decision making. I also understand that the vitriol directed at the PM by...

Re: Service Suspension Notice

Mbav8r, I appreciate the well thought out post. I don’t have data on how long surgeries etc were delayed in the past. It might very well be longer delays now then previously. But the comparisons to delays from past years is never made, as far as I can tell. The articles currently seem to be about d...

Re: Service Suspension Notice

As you also pointed out, there are no studies and I would argue impossible to study this responsibly. How about anecdotally, Manitoba was on a very troubling trajectory and locked down with beefed up enforcement, now we have numbers low enough to start opening up responsibly. Allowing retail at 25%...
