    Didn't you have Alcock as an instructor at some point or other Kip?

    Who really cares what anyone from Westjet thinks about Air Canada or what anyone at Air Canada thinks about Westjet. At the end of the day, is your life so shallow that your identity rests solely on who your employer is? I have been in this business for 31 years and I have yet to see any difference between a CAIL, AC, AT, WJ etc employee. It seems we all just want a decent way to earn a living, spend time with family and friends and fly our airplanes (the last time I looked both Westjet and Air Canada’s airplanes had two engines, a tail, two wings and went to some pretty decent places.)

    Fun to fly but that approach and landing wasn’t airshow worthy. Boeing doesn’t need anymore help with aircraft sales. 1. Overshot the turn to final. 2. Touched down hard off the the centerline 3. Excessive braking only to power up again exiting. Other than that it was perfect.

    Maybe apologize to all Canadians for being such an idiot.

    There is that but I also often see new parents using iPads and iPhones as baby sitters allowing them to be on their own phones to check emails/Facebook/Instagram or whatever else they consider more important than actually parenting.

    Deicer, don’t say this often, but I agree 100%..... maybe Trudeau and climate Barbie could get around to tweeting Brazil and Malaysia about the eco effects of deforestation instead of lecturing the elites at Davos.

    There is a high school, 2 middle schools and 3 elementary schools in the neighbourhood, so I see the zombies walking by with phone in hand every day.

    I have been saying this for years. Kill 2 birds with one stone. Build efficient incinerators like Sweden. Direct about 99% of your trash to the incinerators and use them to create electricity. That is about the best renewable energy money can buy because we will never stop creating trash. This will reduce groundwater pollution from Landfill sites as well as other environmental factors. This is not rocket science.

    “Good to hear that kids will always be able to keep track of their parents”. Not really seeing the need however Kip brings up a good point. Knowing how much time you have to clean up and get all of the hookers out of your parent’s house could come in handy.

    All forums have a smattering of facts and many opinions......such is life...such is my life I believe in technology ...in fact if I could get cash out of my computer I would never go to a bank....but all technology is not good. The proof is in what you see with so many young kids...steps out the door , starts texting right away. We are slowly losing the ability for kids to have PATIENCE, to LISTEN to those that have been "here" for decades. To LEARN that Mom and Dad can't always be in contact. To engage in MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION. We are getting to the point where kids are losing touch with reality. Being alone, without one parent, or another, is a learning experience, and a bonding experience...Mom/Dad flying away for a time, without the above technology, eases a child into that reality.................. and personally, I think this gadget takes the "Mom/Dad are home" anticipation out of a child waiting to see one/two of their parents. Please bear in mind that I am not painting all children with the same brush, there are many fine kids out there but more kids should learn some short, and perhaps uncomfortable, facts of life.......being out of touch with Mom/Dad is one of them. PS..I guess I should have used emojis to lighten up my previous post... Also....sorry for mini rant and and drifting off the center line.....

    The Pension is NOT a reward. IT'S YOUR MONEY and YOUR EMPLOYERS MONEY. The government puts no money into the pension fund they only manage it. We are being ROBBED.

    Based on the posts in this thread, reasoned thought, does not exist. Both sides have dug in and nothing other than looking back in 2050 or later will convince either side that they are / were wrong.

    I was recently informed that in the United States they are no longer able to teach in public schools that climate change is even a debate. Since every education system in the modern world is dominated by the Left, it therefore follows that they force / "teach" leftist ideologies. One only has to look at the pathetic behaviour by students at most universities for proof. I guess then that the only way to have your children get a well rounded education which looks at both sides of every argument,,allowing the student to decide what is right and what is wrong is through home schooling or private schools that are not tied to political strings. My question is....At what point does the "education" system become an "indoctrination" system? Where does reasoned thought draw the line?

    I see he is now going to apologize to Italian Canadians who suffered during WWII (https://globalnews.ca/news/5393592/justin-trudeau-italian-apology-wwii/), I wonder who is left for him to apologize to? Perhaps to the US for burning the White House (but I guess he is limited to events that happened after we became a country and of course to those events that an apology might garner votes for the Libs ? He must have staff who are tasked with finding people that he should apologize to.

    I know where you may be able to acquire a main landing gear leg, although the town of Roissy may have something to say about it.

    Hmm me too, maybe I should occasionally unplug the internet secretly and change some habits.

    The equation will eventually balance itself out.. It's natures basic law. The planet will fight back by making itself uninhabitable by humans. Then nature will fix itself as it always does.

    Hopefully, current lib MPs won’t be around to take advantage of it!

    Be very careful what you wish for. Before you know it Trudeau will be sending them BILLIONS of CANADIAN taxpayers BORROWED MONEY just because he can

    Was just kidding as I see the same around our neighbourhood. Heads down with iPhone glued to their hands walking across busy intersections. Social media is their priority. Safety and security a distance second.

    Just hang out around a high school, or at a mall food court and you will see proof of what Kip says.

    I don’t think anyone is against immigration if it’s done legally. That being said, I believe immigration entirely from one place in the world strictly for political purposes will only harm the country in the long run.
