Not sure what your problem is but I used to work there, the phones are disconnected and it would be nice to know if the pilots there are out of work so that I could possibly help one of them out for next season.

You can go back to your hole now.

Let me see.

It is the end of October. It is primarily a season based company. I would expect that maybe your friends are not working there right now. But I suppose you could phone or email them to confirm it.
They must be close friends if the only way to contact them is on a public forum.

They might have even being able to confirm things to avoid you having to post a rumour complete wth innuendo on a public forum..

Or gosh, if it was so important to you, take a few moments and do an air operator search on the TC website.

I have no idea about this company, but no company deserves someone coming on here and saying they heard a rumour the company was out of business....and then ask for details. Details of what? You are implying the rumour is true. What details do you need to help your friends?

If you were offended by my post, take a moment and ask youself how you made the people at Kenora Air feel if it was not true....the two posts are very similar.

Or you could tell me to crawl back in my hole

Or you could send me a PM, and call me an asshole. That is always a classy thing to do.

Very rare for a complete TC shutdown to take place. Generally, every opportunity is given for the operator to correct the problem. If it did get shutdown? Then it would have been in accordance with Staff Instruction SUR-014 and that information would be available via Access to Information, for anybody who is truly interested.

Just spoke with Mary Ann a month or so ago...alls well at Kenora Air Service.

As Philly said, a complete shut down of any company is VERY rare as TC gives every opportunity for a short term and long term corrective action plan.

Your post was in bad taste sir.
