  3. And I watch in awe as the media blames Trump for it all. The level of noncompliance in the US borders on insane and there was never the slightest doubt what was going to happen. It's the most basic of WDYTWGTH scenarios. For many, this virus is a new world of reality coupled with immediate consequence that most of them have never experienced before... and it shows. If there is blame to be placed for the virus resurgence, it lies with the media and politicians who supported the mass protests by hundreds of thousands whilst condemning a bible study with 10 people as irresponsible and illegal. All I can say is enjoy the show, no other outcome was possible Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber says residents are "not listening" as numbers soared to 2,418 new cases in his city.
  4. British Airways ends row with Government quarantine rules. Our lack of reciprocity leaves us out. So far we can go to the EU and not quarantine. That will likely end soon without reciprocity. the challenge was withdrawn after a list of 73 countries and territories where English tourists can visit without self-isolating on their return was published by the Department for Transport (DfT). https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/coronavirus-airlines-end-row-with-government-over-quarantine-rules-143436915.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5hY3BpbG90LmNhLw&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAALhdTvrppednFjbe76Pzlon19uTwOtvyn64Qk039tbnz3iX8WGKcZIx_XzG8khfubhB_RSBhllsjeRP7JhiZKs3AwfYNG6oPiv0WSoCjEunDNBI_OgVfQmb47r3AGOrGhZhlMVWZyS6aSLOYNL1qGzhsiwjdnm7RhMH92jCgbMHM

  8. I point this out only as an example of unintended consequences. It is way over simplistic to say, shutdown and stay at home and it will save lives. Everything is a trade off. https://nationalpost.com/health/covid-19-canada-unemployment-depression-suicide You can look at deaths in third world countries and the world economy as well. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-children-un/u-n-warns-economic-downturn-could-kill-hundreds-of-thousands-of-children-in-2020-idUSKBN21Y2X7 Increased Cancer deaths https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/932858 Closer to home. Calgary man dies from lockdown. https://calgaryherald.com/opinion/columnists/corbella-alberta-man-died-from-the-lockdown-not-covid-19 Im not suggesting I know the correct balance. I’m glad I don’t make these decisions. Just saying that this shutdown has its own death toll. Shutting down too long creates an unnecessary death toll. Opening too soon creates an unnecessary death toll. It is why my personal opinion is if it can be done reasonably safely? Open it up. Over caution will kill too. The problem is politicians are not striking a balance. Not even attempting to. All they are concerned about is optics.
  9. There are a couple of cases in USA where the seat occupant had a "death grip" on the seat handles after ejection and only after a short moment the person let go of the handles but by then.....tangled. Obviously ejection seats and sequences are different for different aircraft

  11. Because not everyone thinks the same way. Prudent risk management to one person is an over reaction to another. As you know when it comes to safety we always accept some risk. The safest thing to do is not get in a car at all. We do anyway. The safest airline is the one that never flies. If Transat can be believed they have good loads this summer on routes to France. AC domestic loads are increasing. People are moving by air. If the EU has Covid under control then what is the difference between YVR-YYC and YVR-LHR?
  12. Demand and mobility (absence of restrictions). US domestic capacity for August is planned at 55-85% depending on the carrier (the LCC’s are adding back the most capacity). US international still planned at 25% or less.

  21. Let this sink in.....The US has had more new COVID cases in the last two days than Canada has had from the very beginning.

  23. Consider how quickly those pictures and details where released. Then compare it to the ongoing absurdity and deliberate information suppression that is the Nova Scotia investigation. Need further proof, compare the Nova Scotia travesty with the Danforth shooting and compare the tactics at play. I bet this guy is white, I bet he has a PAL, and I bet we will know sooner rather than later.
  24. TORONTO -- A 63-year-old man has been charged after an hours-long standoff at a Brampton home overnight. Police were called to the residence near Hoskins Square and Helena Court at around 11 p.m. on Thursday for a report of shots fired. One neighbour told CP24 that he heard at least eight gunshots coming from the rear of the home and decided to call 911. Once officers arrived on scene they located an unknown number of shell casings, police say. They then determined that a man had barricaded himself inside the home. Police say that a negotiator was called in and the surrounding area was secured https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/man-63-charged-after-hours-long-standoff-at-brampton-home-1.5009279
  25. I couldn't get the link to work properly so here is the full article. It speaks eloquently as to why there was such a concerted effort to brand these weapons as "patrol carbines." They said it loud, they said it over and over..... and people totally believed it. I offer the article solely as an example of the power of controlling the use of words and the concept of 'POOF". POOF - something that is something can also morph to something else that isn't something by changing the name. It's like organizations that have been "disbanded." POOF - the name changed, same people, same office, same job, same phone number... only the sign painter and Liberal strategists know for sure. I'm not suggesting they shouldn't have done this.... I simply find the craven hypocrisy offensive. Canada’s Military Gave 2,012 Assault Rifles to 68 Police Forces
