Re: AC pilot salaries now?

It would be interesting to see what your honest opinion was of people making 5 times your income and bitching about taxes when you just started out... You know, when you were renting a place, trying to start a family etc. I'm sure you stood up and said "heck that captain sure pays to much taxes! Ma...

Re: AC pilot salaries now?

The guy making 300k hasn't been making 300k his whole career. Their was a time that that 300k wage earner was a 30 year old leach to society making peanuts and taking advantage of every social benefit for his young kids etc. So no the 300k wage earner is not contributing more to society.

Re: Equipment bid

We’re all just bickering about the price of human lives. At some point it boils down to that. Personally I’m just going to let the cards fall where they may, but I don’t think it’s justified to sh*t on the masses just because they’re scared [and you’re not]. Human lives will also be lost by the eco...

Top 10% of the income earners in Canada pay 54% of the income tax collected. The bottom 40% of income earners pay no tax after government benefits. It's darn close to universal basic income at the expense of the top earners and the CERB isn't going to be easy to turn off now. Workers make at least ...

Re: Nav Canada to Hike Service Fees by 30%

ATC is an essential service. Joe Blo flying down to Cayo Coco with his family for some fun in the sun isn't essential. So comparing Air Canada's situation to that of NavCan's isn't entirely accurate. Yes, passengers will end up paying for these increases - that includes me btw -, but if you cant af...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Another major point that I think needs to be highlighted by the airlines, is that (as far as I have been able to find) is that there were no "super spreader" events that came from air travel. So even before the masks, it simply was not a major point of spread. You can’t possibly be serious. How do ...

Re: Are there any confirmed cases of Covid 19 transmission on airplanes?

Airplanes are responsible for circulating people around the planet, but on the actual flight there are (or at least were) no known super spreader events, which occur where people make moist on each other (weddings, funerals, religious services, curling bonspiels). Regular transmission probably occur...

If I'm able to hold 2 ideas in my head at the same time - that the disease is serious AND that the longer the economy is idled, the harder the recovery which will eventually result in serious tax shortfalls for heavy spending governments.
