Re: I would like your opinion?

Aha! So you admit that you are not a lawyer. My recommendation remains the same, which is: "You should seek and obtain the advice of a lawyer having experience in this area to review the facts of your situation and applicable law so as to determine if there is a case and if so, whether it is worthy...

No you cannot. To sue you must have a provable cause of action. In this case there is none.

Re: Will Westjet survive?

You can't layoff people indefinitely unless the CBA says otherwise as per the CLC. The CLC says you can do a temporary layoff for up to 3 months with the option to extend it another 3 months. after that it must be a permanent layoff and then severance must be paid out as per the CLC. I'm guessing W...

Re: Saskatchewan Provincial Park Restrictions for Float Planes

The service of alcohol provincial laws would only apply while the aircraft is on the ground. It would revert to federal law once in the air. No it wouldn’t. The provincial liquor monopoly is not constitutionally inapplicable to the appellant airlines. http://canlii.ca/t/1fr0x Forgive me for being a...

Re: Seaplane Rating YQT

As a side note an earlier commentor mentioned someone not being able to supply both the plane and instructor for the float rating. I'm not sure that is accurate. Atikokan Aero has been providing training towards float plane ratings for decades and they offer both the plane and training pilot, witho...

Re: Seaplane Rating YQT

There are no schools with seaplanes in YQT. You can get a freelancer but you'll have to get a plane from someone. Someone can't supply both the plane and the instructor unless they have an FTUOC.

Onex spent billions on it purchase and will work towards making it a leaner meaner carrier. Onex only spend around $300M on the purchase (sorry, don't have the exact number). The rest came from other unknown investors. AC has been bankrupt how many times and comes back stronger. The feds won't let ...

Impact reminds me of the guy who sends asinine emails to his reps, constantly harassing them thinking that they get a month of flight relief and do nothing. Then they get a call from the CP that they're OPI (off pending investigation) and all of a sudden they're the rep's best friend. If you don't l...

Re: A "NEW" One List?

The company sees opportunity in this crisis. Their bargaining positioning was on the lines of: 1. Gutting scope, larger Jets at Encore; 2. ESP removed until their discretion; 3. Compensation reductions; 4. Layoff pay concessions; 5. Recall out of seniority. That's grossly exaggerated. We keep heari...

Re: A "NEW" One List?

Well those who were upset about Encore making concessions, must be right happy now that the mainline MEC wasn't able to save a single job. Those top ~500 guys can now continue making 150-200K +ESP while the rest get laid off. Actually, the MEC was capable of saving 1000 pilot jobs. However, the MEC...

Re: Saskatchewan Provincial Park Restrictions for Float Planes

Provincial governments can not technically make regulations on the landing and take off of an aircraft.

Are they a bunch of evil villains sitting around twisting their moustaches in delight at the result of this agreement? T...
