Re: Transat revenues drop by 99%, with 2,000 layoffs expected

So you also support criminal activity. No wonder society is breaking down and police and being murdered in the streets. Law and order is not one of your strengths, comrade. You might be more comfortable if you loosened your tinfoil hat a bit........ https://images.glaciermedia.ca/polopoly_fs/1.2414...

If you go back and read Rockies comments that took this thread of course. He not only implied someone was white for no reason. He also implied they were racist with no evidence whatsoever. He displayed a predetermined bias toward this individual, which is the basis of racism. Which should stir ange...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

Of course the ability to do that depends on putting our house back in order between emergencies. Our failure to do that is our own fault for our unwillingness to accept a little hardship and bank surpluses to pay down debt. At the end of the day politicians only do what we want, even if we like to ...

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

If Air Canada really wanted Transat, instead of paying $18/share, why not go in there today and buy shares at $5? Hmmm, I think I answered my own question. You are assuming that those who own shares want to sell them. Even if you see that the shares are listed at $5, it does not mean there are any ...

For myself, I know I would much rather have my last days/months shortened but spent with my family and friends, than extended by being locked down in solitary confinement.

Also, the consequences of getting sick in Italy are disastrous. Exactly. There's an important point to consider too in that alot of travel insurance companies are not covering if you get ill from covid-19 while abroad. Which, ironically, is what they should be doing if they want to keep selling tra...

I'm not remotely surprised that few media outlets are reporting Kenny's address to legislature. It doesn't fit their "fear model" and indefinite lockdown agenda. You certainly won't find it on any CBC related material. Ahem: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/jason-kenney-alberta-cov...

Re: Air Canada Second Trip to C.C.A.A.?

I interpret it as not wanting the government support which comes with too many onerous conditions. One of the statements during the announcements, companies need to consider government as 'lender of last resort', and they stated a company should exhaust all regular avenues of financing first.

Re: Air Tindi Flight Missing

From what I've seen (not necessarily at Air Tindi), is that pressure is seldom linked to one flight. It's a culture thing. A company wants you to go when you can, a company questions you when you snag a plane, things like that. Also, if a flight was unimportant, it wouldn't have been dispatched to ...

Apparently doctors and nurses are being asked to link all possible covid deaths to the virus. I'm sure there are some that are not being linked, but I'm equally sure there are many that are.
