Seems like we had more than a few accidents and incidents where flight crews are unfit to fly (fatigue, drugs, alcohol and even depression).

Stay vigilant.

Now there is a lesson to be learned. I haven't read the report but let's hope that the TSB concentrated on this instead of extraneous add on's.
