Who, with a type rating, will go there? Maybe Jazz or Porter FO's for an upgrade?

Hey North Cariboo! Just go to HRSDC and apply for an LMO to import some Q400 type rated Foreign pilot. You won't have to pay for training. Then once he/she arrives, pay them overseas through an offshore company and don't declare the pilot to the CRA and you'll save on all the other stuff Canadian employees normally cost. Since he/she will basically be collecting a tax and deductions free salary, in an offshore account, they will be happy working for less. Of course you need not pay vacation and all that either. They will eventually bring their friends over too. Licences! No problem. The good people at TC will rubber stamp his/her home country licence as long as he/she can pass the instrument ride in a Q400 simulator. It should be a piece of cake. Just put a qualified Canadian Q400 pilot in the other seat. The FLVC is valid for one year at a time but TC will renew it every year without any problem, allowing continuous and un-interrupted flying with a foreign licence. All the pilot has to do is maintain his offshore status. Since they don't pay taxes anyway, that is easy to prove. Work permit expiry? No problem. They'll eventually renew it. Just tell them a Canadian corporation will lose money if they don't. In the meantime, they can work without one. Just provide the pilot with a letter stating the foreigner is in Canada "training". Nobody will come snooping around. Especially if you don't fly international. If anyone causes any trouble, give me a call. I'll tell you what to tell them to shut them up and make them go away. Others do what I just described so why not North Cariboo and any other company. Why bother with expensive and troublesome Canadian pilots.......

I'm pretty sure people don't appreciate you hijacking their thread Gilles. You seem desperate and frustrated. Must be because you've lost the support of ACPA, ALPA and even your own employer, Transat.

Actually really good satire like Gilles' is always appreciated, probably because it's more intelligent than 97% of the crap that gets posted here.

Note that RodgerDodger doesn't actually refute anything Gilles said, just scolds like a schoolmarm....

*sigh*

Here's hoping there isn't someone at NCA studying Sunwing/CanJet carefully as we speak. Be nice to get a few more Canadian jobs on the go. Now that the Western aircraft manufacturers have sold out to the Middle East.

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/11/17/trave ... ord-deals/

How's THAT for a thread hijack?!

You will ALL work in the Middle East one day, if you want a decent wage. The only ones working in Canada will be the lowly-paid foreigners on temporary contracts. (Don't forget, vote for Harper!)

MUHAHAHAH! *evil laugh*

His concerns are very valid on a macro Canadian industry viewpoint. His tongue in cheek post are based on other carriers past practices and should concern every pilot in Canada.

Quite the opposite. One Dash captain had the courage to stand up to management when they tried to spring a $12,000 bond after he and three others (all internal and already typed) were awarded Q400 positions. Because of him, none of them had to sign.
