In today's PC and "humane" world it's best to give a beast of burden lots of meds and keep it on life support instead of a bullet to the head and ship it to the glue factory.

Sure it seems cruel but until you can talk to an animal, please don't think you know what's in it's best interest.. But today, many disabled people prefer to be euthanised but legally can't(funny how we're busy caring about who can marry who while those suffering continue to really suffer)..

Anyhoot..

A stay on execution, is just that a "stay." Doesn't mean a pardon, just prolonging death.

Guarantee that it won't die, which you can't and it's proven that more then likely it will die because the unions would rather see it fold then to set a precedence in submitting to the "big bad wolf"..

So, say goodbye and so long, let Canada pick up the ashes and create a new Air Canada.

It will not be "complicated" and costly as some have suggested..

For myself, I didn't vote on this poll since it doesn't seem to be a clear question. What exactly do they mean?

Are they talking about whether the government bails out Air Canada or whether we should hope and pray that Air Canada should survive, or is it just an assessment that Air Canada is unsuitable to continue it's existence?

The only airline that should be allowed to operate in Canada is Yoyomair !
