    I don't face the book or tweet the twit and "myspace" is a small room just off the master bedroom with porcelain fixtures! Of course to be interested in social networks you have to be a social person - AND I'M NOT SOCIAL! PS, yes, I know, Myspace is no longer a thing but it works for the joke.

    Many moons ago AC had a Program for Customer Care that empowered the front line employee to make decisions to better serve the customer. Unfortunately that program was scrapped. I find there is too much of this "We Can't" instead of "I will do whatever I can". There is a cost to it but repeat business pays for that cost in the long run.

    Your real world must be very sad, or cloistered, which I guess would be pretty sad in itself. I've met many people from all of the aforementioned groups and whether they became friends or not, they were people who struck me as nice and good citizens. Maybe it's the byproduct of living in multi-cultural cities, where you interact with every type of person from every race, every major religion and many nationalities, but I find most people are good. Everyone has a lot on their plate, and they don't often have time to talk or they have different interests, but most people in Canada are good. I suggest you look at the image Malcolm posted and try it. Go to Tim Horton's or Starbucks or wherever and smile at some people who aren't just like you - I bet many of them would smile back. At the end of the day, most people just want to get through the day.

    Please understand...I am not trying to be flippant In summary..... There is a VISA restriction for people attempting to visit or immigrate into the USA from 7 countries. This restriction is for 90 days People are upset Yes, 90 days may seem like a long time and many feel that it is unfair and have decided to protest.. (do the protesters have jobs and they take a sick day or....?) Some posters on this forum look like they are taking sides and the discussion is getting heated. I think we have to admit that all the "cut and paste articles" are very emotional and some individuals are bolstering their POV using the "cut and paste" documents. I don't think many here could be considered as experts with respect to American law, nor are they well are versed with the twisted and very complicated rules within the US Constitution nor we do we have any access to the legal documents that will be coming out of the wood work for decades over the 90 day ban.... It's for 90 days people, only 3 months .......My scuba mate has been told that she will have to have a consultation with a neurologist.... and it will take OVER a YEAR to get a consult so my sympathy for those that have to wait 90 days to start their entry process into the US evaporates very quickly. Time to chill out , sit back and just think about all the wonderful things that have happened in YOUR life.

    I haven't posted on this thread because I think I would be simply repeating what others have quite ably posted; preaching to the choir, so to speak. My issues include the improper use ( in my opinion) of the English language. I understood that Islam is the religion and Muslims are its followers. A "phobia" is a fear. I don't like recluse spiders but I don't have a problem with "daddy long legs". I don't have arachnophobia because I don't fear ALL spiders. I have no issue with Islam any more than I have issues with Christianity and Judaism. However, I do have a fear of SOME Muslims.....the ones who think all non-believers should be beheaded. I suggest that is not only a reasonable fear; its a healthy fear and may prolong my life. I'm not a "muslimophobic". Maybe Bil M-103 was drafted with the word "Islamophobic" because ""Muslimophobic" looked silly and was too hard to say. But how do you convey to these idiot politicians that 1) they're wasting their time and our money and, 2) there are more pressing issues of actual national importance such as safeguarding our borders from illegal immigrants. Look where the US is now because of its failure to react to a violation of its sovereign rights--- the right ( and obligation) to protect its borders. If an army of people attempted to cross our borders without permission, would we not act immediately to repel them? Does the definition of army require the possession of firearms by the invader?

    It is of interest that you have described Trump's speech in Melbourne, Fl as an event on a "campaign trail". That in fact is the media portrayal; that to deal with the withdrawal of Flynn as NSA and the negative press, Trump reverted to "campaign mode". So.....you are adopting and relying upon the media characterization. And that is the point, isn't it? There appears to be mounting evidence that media labelling of the Trump administration is purposefully negative. One can choose to describe an event as a " public appearance" or " connecting with the public" or as a "campaign event"....and the latter phrase is perceived by the reader as having negative connotations while the first is positive. You yourself have used the terminology for its negative connotation. Barack Obama made over 400 speeches during his two terms and he used "press conferences" as his primary means of communications. He did NOT go out and mingle with the electorate. He had excellent relations with the press and was a gifted speaker and VERY adept at controlling the process. He obviously chose a means of communicating with the public in which he felt most effective. Is it unreasonable for Trump to do the same? The following was spoken by Obama in a presentation in April, 2009, within his first 100 days; So I think we're off to a good start. But it's just a start. I'm proud of what we've achieved, but I'm not content. I'm pleased with our progress, but I'm not satisfied. Millions of Americans are still without jobs and homes, and more will be lost before this recession is over. Credit is still not flowing nearly as freely as it should. Countless families and communities touched by our auto industry still face tough times ahead. Our projected long-term deficits are still too high. And government is still not as efficient as it needs to be. We still confront threats ranging from terrorism to nuclear proliferation as well as pandemic flu. And all this means you can expect an unrelenting, unyielding effort from this administration to strengthen our prosperity and our security -- in the second hundred days, and the third hundred days, and all the days after that." Obama intentionally lowered the expectation bar. One can regard that speech as a description of a lightening sky; the overcast skies perhaps parting. Compare that approach with that of Trump who has repeatedly assured Americans in their own language that there WILL be continued improvement and prosperity. I have no idea whether or not he is right. I defer to the world of business leaders and investors who have expressed their opinions not with words but with money as the world stock markets reflect. As an aside, any opinion why the press was silent...no opeds in the G&M.....when it was indicated Trump was effectively endorsing continued illegal settlements in Israel and promising a move of the embassy and yet....reducing the level of conflict with Russia has been construed as an act of treason?

    Actually the AC Pilot uniform is one of the most professional looking out there. One only has to look at what has come of the US carriers pilot uniforms (including the no hat/backpack brigade) to see how unprofessional a change in appearance standard can be. The double breasted tunic forces the wearer to do it up. Single breasted is typically left undone and looks sloppy. Some like hats, some don't. The purpose of the hat is to readily identify the pilot(s). Mission accomplished.

    Dishonest media? Fake media spin? Here's a section from the article linked by deicer above: Mr. Trump again invoked Sweden as an example of the detriments of immigration. “The people over there understand that I’m right. Take a look at what’s happening in Sweden.” False. Mr. Trump referred to a nonexistent terrorist attack in Sweden during a Feb. 18 campaign rally in Florida, baffling an entire nation. If he was referring to crime in a country known for taking in large numbers of refugees, the data does not support him, either. The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention found no significant increase in overall crime rates from 2015 to 2016. You see what they did there? They say Trump referred to a non-existent terrorist attack. He did not refer to a terrorist attack, he simply said "look at what's happening in Sweden." The media created a false narrative, or tried to create one, that Trump was out of touch or incorrect. This is the fake news that Trump is referring to. This is often what they lefties consider as "fact-checking" too - to take something he didn't say and show it as incorrect. This guy has pretty fair take on the Sweden reference:

    There is strong speculation that UA and AC will reapply for anti-trust immunity, so let's not talk about what "all US airlines want. It's the same old "us vs them". AA and DL will object to the Justice Department but it won't be because AC picking up two passengers on a Dash 8 at Cleveland is an issue. As for the international segments, That said, sixth freedom traffic is gravy, profit, not the underlying support to bring a new route close to break even. If there is no domestic support for a given route, it won't last for long. When Donald Trump met with the airline CEOs a couple of weeks ago, the one thing he zoned in on was airlines like the ME3 allegedly supported financially by their governments. Air Canada is a lot of things, but it is not directly funded by the federal government. In fact, one can argue the opposite today.

    It's a joke...take a deep breath! The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. Beer required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer and vice versa. These two were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: 1. Liberals. 2. Conservatives. Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement. Other men who were less skilled at hunting (called 'vegetarians' which was an early human word meaning 'bad hunter') learned to live off the Conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hairdressing. This was the beginning of the liberal movement. Some of these liberal men evolved into women. Others became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that Conservatives provided. Over the years Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons. Modern Liberals like lite beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: many liberal women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most college professors, social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, film makers in Hollywood , group therapists and community organizers are liberals. Liberals meddled in our national pastime and invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat. Conservatives drink real beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are members of the military, big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, airline pilots, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other Conservatives who want to work for a living. Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when Conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing. Here ends today's lesson in world history. It should be noted that a liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to this post.

    Word is it wasn't the way the story portrays it... and the whole swoop in 'this is how westjet does it' is outright made up. Good job on the AC crew making the safe choice to an uneventful diversion in the middle of the night at the end of a long duty day in poor weather. I understand AC staff were busy answering questions, booking new flights and getting everyone's accommodations looked after for the night. Nice of a fellow industry professional to order in a few pizzas while AC staff were sorting other things out...

    Agreed. And the rise of this "nonrecognition of authority" and indeed the roots of anarchy itself are succinctly described by Rex Murphy in his opinion piece you referenced above as he describes the mindset of one particular protester: "I have nominated myself the voice of a minority. That offers full and unbounded validity to all of my opinions, however scantily fertilized by research or facts. I am righteous, therefore, I am free to call any and everyone else whatever I choose to call them, regardless of how ugly, harsh and ridiculous the description happens to be. I’m an activist — truth and fact be dammed."

    One thing about the paint job is that most passengers could care less how the aircraft is painted on the outside. It is the interior that counts and that can be ignored if the service is good. My experience flying on AC (revenue) is that the onboard service is generally very good.

    Yes, Gumbi, really. Spicer steamrolled over media questions as he tried to explain this one, and this was early in his tutelage of the media. He has grown much more hazardous to intellectual health since then; Sean "Stockholm" Spicer. This is what happens when people ride off in all directions with half-truths, lies, minds disconnected from reality and an unconscionable presidential edict telling government officials of all levels that all Muslims are now officially dangerous. You just never know what your people will do when you have given them permission to believe that racist behaviour is the new "security level". Unbelievable. Or is it?

    Good grief! Why stop there? If paying tax is the price of admission to the medical system, why not extend it to all publicly funded services? No driving on roads, no access to schools, no police services, etc. There are plenty of born-and-raised-in-Canada Canadians who pay no tax. Should they also be banned from receiving medical assistance? Neither of my two siblings have ever worked or paid tax in this country, yet they somehow (don't ask me how) manage to survive on government assistance. Over my 50 years, I've had the privilege of visiting every Province and Territory of this great country and have lived in five Provinces. I can't remember EVER meeting a first-generation immigrant who was willingly unemployed. On the contrary, those I've met worked exceedingly hard, especially those with children. It has been my experience that recent immigrants are the least likely to be freeloaders. They've come here to MAKE a better life for themselves and their kids, not to have it MADE better for them. (FWIW, both my parents are immigrants.) IMO, we should welcome those who WE choose as immigrants with ALL the benefits of being a Canadian. Otherwise, why invite them into the country at all?

    As I remember relamping was a maintenance function, and for a good reason. Gent I flew with one trip decided to relamp the switch that was part of the VOR box on the glareshield edge. He got the switch released and out OK but the lamp/bulb itself was not so easy. He got his thumbnail in the edge and the bulb shot out and went into the switch socket. In an instant the flight deck was full of smoke and this was not too long before departure. Luckily for him the AME who showed up saved his, (and mine I suppose, as I should have told him not to do it), bacon. We had opened the windows to get rid of the smoke but as he came in he sniffed the air and said, "Been changing light bulbs have we ?". He robbed an adjacent aircraft, replaced the entire box and we made it out sked with a big sigh of relief. We owed that man.

    Hi Defcon You wrote: Much is said regarding the separation of church & state yet it appears the two are joined at the hip in some unholy fashion. Why is there a 'need' for the US State to maintain an Ambassador & staff to the Catholic Church??? The following is from wiki: Vatican City (i/ˈvætᵻkən ˈsɪti/; Italian: Città del Vaticano [tʃitˈta ddel vatiˈkaːno]; Latin: Civitas Vaticana),[d] officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City (Italian: Stato della Città del Vaticano;[e] Latin: Status Civitatis Vaticanae),[f] is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. With an area of approximately 44 hectares (110 acres), and a population of 842,[3] it is the smallest State in the world by both area and population, but formally it is not sovereign, sovereignty being held by the Holy See, the only entity of public international law that has diplomatic relations with almost every country in the world. So, as it says Vatican City is a city state that holds diplomatic relations with pretty much everybody. The issue of the relationship between church and state is often misconstrued. Every elected official has a POV whether they be religious or atheistic. The concept of the separation between church and state does not preclude anyone from having his/her views influenced by their religious or atheistic beliefs. They were presumably elected while holding those beliefs. The point is that the separation means that the church should not be a vehicle for achieving political power. We can see the consequences of this in Quebec in the last century where the Catholic church did have political influence. It was a disaster for both church and state. The Catholic church there still has not recovered. This issue of separation that we should be worrying about is the separation between media and state. The backlash from that has resulted in a Trump presidency. Politicians are always currying favour with the media as it was necessary get enough support from that quarter in order to get elected. Gaining a position in the media was, and still is, a route in which one could gain political power without ever having to be elected. With Trump we can see that road to political power being slowly eroded with Trump bypassing them and campaigning by going directly to the great unwashed. The opinions of CNN on the left and FOX on the right while is still relevant but becoming less so. I would imagine that within a relatively short time mainstream media will suffer a demise similar to the Catholic church in Quebec but they won't go down as quietly.

    I probably shouldn't even waste my energy by typing, but sometimes one has way too much time on one's hands, sometimes it's just too hot for the beach or sometimes one likes to imagine life as a schoolteacher. Before I go down this road: a caveat or two. I sincerely (and I sincerely, sincerely mean this) pray that I'm absolutely, totally, bigly wrong with what I'm implying in my words below. I also pray that anyone who reads what I've written won't rat me out to the you-know-who-in-the-chocolate-shirts. If I AM wrong, it'll be the easiest "Aw shucks, I did a boo boo!" to pass my lips, er, keyboard and I'll dance happily ever after with visions of sugar plums in my head. BUT if I'm right, the fallout - a term from my early CAF days that seems oddly pertinent - will not be pleasant. Lives will change forever. I doubt the changes will involve very many sugar plums. However, enough of my prefacing, my excuses, dire predictions and other CYA bafflegab. We all know that there's an old expression that begins, "Those who neglect the lessons of history...yada, yada, yada." (This well-worn cliche goes on to mention really doomy, gloomy things, but we'll skip those bits in the interests of brevity.) Anyway, let's just see if my little trip down History Lane can qualify as a 'lesson' - and whether I might've missed a lucrative career in the teaching profession. Ahem! [Clears throat.] Good morning class, please take your seats and remove your red ball caps. As we discussed last week, on the night of 27 February 1933 a fire broke out in the German Congress (Reichstag). While the exact circumstances of the fire are unknown, Herr Hitler quickly blamed the Communist Party for causing the blaze. Der Fuhrer backed up his claim by brandishing papers containing the names of 205 card-carrying communists, a number that was quietly reduced to 57 when it became yesterday's news. Kellyanne Conway later confirmed these facts on FOX, although to give her her due, she did stumble over the word 'Communist' several times, appearing to be hung up on another term that sounded something like 'puzzlin''. Seizing on the burning of the Reichstag building and claiming it to be the thin edge of the communist wedge or the very first domino or the work of a contracted arsonist, the Nazis threw millions of Germans into convulsions of terror at the concept of Communist...um, well...terror-ists. Leftists world-wide convulsed in sympathy while wannabe jihadists turned towards Mecca and thanked their lucky crescent moons that Hitler hadn't (yet) focussed on them. Meanwhile, Hitler's press secretary reiterated that while der Fuhrer was indeed targeting a specific group of really, really bad hombres, he hadn't yet settled on which specific group. To continue our lesson.... The "Reichstag Fire Decree" is the common name of the "Decree of the Reich President for the Protection of People and State" issued by German president Paul von Rya...er, Hindenburg - on the advice of Hitler - in direct response to the fire. (At the same time, Paul, once a critic of the Fuhrer, managed to inject new life into the previously extinct word 'unctuous'.) The decree nullified many of the key civil liberties of German citizens including freedom of speech, freedom of picking the right books to burn and freedom to Tweet whenever they chose. Lederhosen, thankfully, was still listed as optional. But with Nazis in powerful positions in the government, the decree was used as the legal basis for the imprisonment of anyone considered to be opponents and to suppress publications not considered friendly to the cause. (Kellyanne later pronounced this as just another fake news story since only those publications dissing the leader would be affected. Hidden well down the list in the same fake news decree, Alec Baldwin was officially declared 'persona non grata' and subsequently frog-marched to the Manitoba border.) Back to actual history... Next, the Enabling Act was passed by Germany's parliament on March 23, 1933. It was the second major step after the Fire Decree through which the Nazis obtained dictatorial powers using largely legal means. The Act enabled Tr...er, Hitler and his cabinet to enact laws without the participation of the Congress-cum-Reichstag. (History records that Paul and the rest of the Reichstag were afterwards seen scratching their heads, exchanging confused looks and tweeting "WTF?" Some were heard mumbling, "Hey! What happened to our job-share?" A few mused whether they should've read the fine print on Obama's universal unemployment insurance program.) More real - okay, only some of it's real - history again.... The formal name of the Enabling Act translates as the "Law to Remedy the Distress of the People and the Empire", but is more commonly known as the "Law to make Germany great - and safe - again" or simply the "Don't worry, I'm really, really smart and I know more than anyone about everything Law". [Sound of ringing bell] Unfortunately class, that brings us to the end of today's lesson. Tonight's homework will be to spot any historical similarities to recent events and to write a short essay on why you agree or why you can say "it ain't so, Joe, oops, Justin. Or Billy Bob. Or Ivanka." For added credits, please explain what actual - or staged - or even imaginary - event you think could lead to this happening again. And yes students, I'll admit that there may have been a little poetic licence taken with today's lesson, but do your best to spot the parallels anyway. If it gives you hope, rest assured it'll be heaps easier than last week's surprise "Where's Waldo?" test. Class dismissed, don't forget your hats. [Not really seeing it? Here's the link you want: www.cnib.ca] Note: with mangled quotes from various sources including Wikipedia but mixed with liberal doses of juxtaposed events and bound together using inputs from a really, really paranoid mind.

    Fantastic. If you listen carefully to the audio you can hear the protestors shouting to each other to "Call the Police!" from their bakesale booths! Yup, that's right, their plan was to trespass on some farmer's land, setup illegal booths and hold a bake sale to protest fracking. Another brilliant plan by the lefties! That's almost as bad a a bunch of women dressing up as sluts and marching through the streets half naked to protest being treated like sluts.

    As was stated well before DJT was elected President, the President of the United States is not a one-man show. And this was made clear with the recent Court intervention on the President's Executive Order on Immigration. There will no doubt, over time, be other interventions against Trump's actions. The guy has been in office less than 3 weeks. He is a novice politician, we all know that. He is not politically astute, does not worry about being politically correct and makes many comments/statements that cause many of us to go "Huh?". But he is attempting to achieve/do what he promised that he would do. Did people expect something otherwise? He's unconventional, unpredictable, unorthodox and unprecedented. We all know that and yet so many people are running around setting their hair on fire, thrashing about and gnashing their teeth - to what effect? That Trump will listen to them and change his stripes? I don't think so. Elections used to, or at least are supposed to "settle matters" in the short term. But not these days; the losing side is all over the winning side like a cloud of tear gas - and that's supposed to be helpful? Supposed to reverse the tide that is still coming in? I say give the guy a year, give him a chance to learn the ropes and maybe even effect some positive change. If he's not successful or worse, proves to be the disaster that most everyone expects him to be then by all means jump on his back. But to do so now? Trump can fail all by himself, hoping that he fails or greasing the rails to ensure that he fails is in no one's interest, including all those who protest against him now. Once the roller-coaster starts up that first rise, there's no getting off because you didn't get to sit where you wanted. No matter how much screaming and yelling that you do ...
