    This is interesting . . . . . . . . Air Canada to Explore Rapid COVID-19 Testing with Spartan Bioscience Français NEWS PROVIDED BY Air Canada Jul 08, 2020, 12:00 ET SHARE THIS ARTICLE Portable kits that quickly detect COVID-19 further support the airline's multi-layered biosafety approach MONTREAL, July 8, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada is pleased to announce it has engaged Spartan Bioscience Inc., an Ottawa-based biotechnology leader in portable DNA testing technology, to assess how best to deploy Spartan's portable COVID-19 testing technology in the aviation sector. "Air Canada's strategy for managing COVID-19 has been to develop and apply multiple layers of biosafety measures for customers and employees. We believe the availability of a rapid, accurate, portable molecular test for COVID-19 will add yet another effective layer. We are excited by the potential and point of care use cases for the Spartan Cube, and look forward to working with the Spartan team in the weeks and months ahead," said Samuel Elfassy, Vice President, Safety at Air Canada. Air Canada has been at the forefront of the airline industry in responding to COVID-19, for example being among the first carriers globally to require face coverings onboard and the first airline in the Americas to take customers' temperatures prior to boarding. In May it introduced a comprehensive program, Air Canada CleanCare+, to apply biosafety measures at each stage of the journey. Air Canada has committed to adding other processes and technologies as they become available, which is why it is pleased to be working with Spartan Bioscience. Spartan is developing a proprietary swab for the collection of DNA samples for its COVID-19 test. Spartan's test cartridge (reagents) and the Spartan Cube (portable DNA analyzer device) remain subject to Health Canada approval. "Spartan is excited to explore how our fast, portable testing technology can help keep Air Canada employees and the travelling public safe as Canada's economy re-opens," said Nick Noreau, Spartan Bioscience's Chief Revenue Officer.

    I bet the entire gambit of before and after videos will start coming out shortly. I would have 25 or 30 of them in production and ready for release. Nothing says hypocrisy quite like eating your own words. Liberals and Democrats remain curiously undeterred and unrepentant though, it's fun to watch. All the while JT was calling Schear a white supremacist, he knew full well there were pictures of him (out there somewhere) in blackface acting like an ape yet he kept up the assault on Schear knowing it was all a lie. I'm looking forward to the Covid videos, like viruses aren't transmitted on cruise ships and airplanes. I've spent a lot of time on ships and airplanes..... the logical absurdity gauge isn't actually broken or suffering from a bad ground it really is pegged at full deflection. We just need a new scale to measure the BS and analog gauges are no longer up to the task.

    Name any other service for which you pay in advance; the service provider says they can't provide the service " at this time"; and is allowed to keep your money and in place thereof, offer only to provide that service " at a future date". There is a very real distinction between the situation where the flight operates but the pax doesn't want to travel and one where the airline simply doesn't operate the flight on which it sold seats. The Minister should understand the difference.

    I see that the $300 blood money from Trudeau was deposited in my account this morning. We can all do what we want with it, but personally I can’t be bought for $300. It’s tax free money that becomes tax deductible..win / win in my books I donated it to my candidate of choice for the Conservative leadership race. I fully intend to use this money in the fight against the true virus in this country..

    I've worked several full or almost full flights over the last week. Not one complaint from customers about the decrease in personal space.
