  7. Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was originally called “Armistice Day” to commemorate armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m.—on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. " This has got to be one of the most powerful photographs I have ever seen. Above is a battalion of the Cameron Highlanders in 1914, prior to being despatched to the front line; below is the same battalion upon their return in 1918 after the armistice. On the eve of the centennial anniversary of

  10. I was a newbie with Wardair and was privileged to be on the A-310 when it was first introduced to WD. I was doing the pre-flight walk around when I noticed a man in civvies loading the belt that went up to the tail cargo compartment. That was normally where the crew baggage went. I stopped and asked one of the fellows loading the forward compartment, " Who's the civvy working the rear belt?" He smiled and said "That's Max...not unusual to see him helping anywhere he can." He was probably one of the main reasons morale was so high in WD. Ever find a passenger that felt WD w

  11. Thanks Canoehead ! good link. I was very lucky to meet Max Ward after he retired. Our hanger was right next to his in YXD. Our aircraft had the same engines as his Challenger,and we knew how to fix Twin Otters! So we got to know his Mechanic Dan Mcniven. I would pop by Dan's office for coffee, expecting that if Max was there, that I would carry on smartly and leave them to their business. Max was very welcoming, Dan was a character ! Many interesting conversations. Yes JL , it was like being in the presence of Aviation Royalty. One of the Ground handlers wanted a poster of

  13. Think that one was from a couple of years ago, (host on the left got booted for sexual misconduct a while back), this one released today was somewhat unkindly described as ' a one-minute video that also appears to serve as a trailer for a movie about a woman who wakes up in a castle one holiday season and goes searching for the person who spiked her eggnog with mushrooms.'

  14. I guess we will find out how much the libs will put us in debt this pm (we can’t afford not to spend will probably be used by Freeland more than once) as the virus drags on. Listening to talk radio this am, there were some startling statistics: from the hotel/hospitality industry: occupancy rates are in the single digits....expect 30% of hotels to go out of business by the summer. from small business: 160000 small businesses will not survive 7% across Canada and we all know how the airlines are doing. We will see if Trudeau will still boast about the economy coming roaring

  17. Media asking tough questions of politicians and others on both sides of the political debate is exactly what I want and expect. It’s shocking to you because your media sources haven’t engaged in this sort of non-biased reporting in years. This exchange only increases my trust and respect for Mr Carlson. One can only hope that others within the MSM will see this and remember what their job is supposed to be. If someone can’t or won’t answer fair but tough questions it’s on them not on the interviewer.

I looked over at her and she smiled but it was a forced and confused smile. Ron and I discussed our strate

  19. A long read but some insight in what could happen to Trump. Can America Restore the Rule of Law Without Prosecuting Trump? - The New York Times (nytimes.com) EARLY IN NOVEMBER, as President Trump challenged the integrity of the election with baseless lawsuits, Joe Biden delivered his first speech as president-elect, declaring it a “time to heal.” It was a phrase that many Americans were surely longing to hear, given the precarious state of the nation’s political culture. But it was also one that carried significant historical weight and possible implications for the fut

  24. On November 17th 1981 I started a part time job at YYZ. I worked loading aircraft for a large private ground handler. After a few years and moving up to shift manager In October 1989 I was laid off due to an airline merger and the subsequent loss of work for my company. A contact position for approximately 4 months got me to a job with Transport Canada. With the airport being transferred I ended up with another employer same job. Now on November 11th 2020 I will be retiring from working at YYZ. A part time job became a career. I met my wife. Had the best view at the airport met many great peop

I only hope, if the AEF is to survive that whoever takes it over, issues strict rules of engagement and couples those with strong mediators who will enforce the rules so as to return the AEF to it's aviation roots and eliminate the name calling, slander etc that had infected the AEF for the past few months.

  34. I refer to your quote.... the author has been ignored for cause. A sudden epiphany for many it seems. Imagine the notion of "the people have spoken," "the election is final," "accept it and move on with the business of the nation." That SH&% is all I've ever asked for.... and for the first time in 4 f*&%$#@ years, those who couldn't swallow their own medicine seek to inject others with it as if they just reached a pharmaceutical break through and registered the bloody patent.

Non stop hourly reporting on Russian collusion based on nothing then complete silence when real evidence of Chinese collusion turns up against a left candidate. Since hour 1 the propaganda line from every outlet has been “despite no evidence of election fraud” that’s a great line and they Know if it’s repeated enough it will become generally believed so it is repeated endlessly. It’s a total lie of course because there was and is evidence of fraud (I

As was the case in Ontario with the green energy debacle (cheap electricity and hundreds of thousands of new jobs), when the bills start rolling in and the rich 1% liberal acolytes flee the jurisdiction, the deicers of the world will start paying their share of what they begat and they won't like it a bit. The tears will flow, the fingers will point and a "Biden1.0" thread will be spawned.... to blame Trump. 197 pages later, there will be a new election, Trump will be back and Trump3.0 will start at page 1.... again.... and again.... and again.
