Ferrying a float plane through Saskabush next month and was wondering if there were any restrictions landing at a lake in a provincial park? Have sent an inquiry to the provincial agency but no joy thus far. Thanks

Something went wrong alright! Yup like little wheels on spring ice! I would not even be up there on skis!

Good afternoon,

Just a quick question, are we allowed to deduct the commuting costs (hotels/flights) from our taxes ?

Thanks a lot for your help!
In Canada I believe the answer is no. It is just like driving your car to work at the office.
