  3. I've never understood the logic that says an infant doesn't need a safe seat until they are suddenly at risk when they reach their 2nd birthday. Parents of infants have been getting an undeserved break on air fare for too long. It's time to do the right thing - mandatory child seats for all infants under two.

The great big green money tree ??? $240B in 11 years. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/how-alberta-pays-quebecs-bills-four-charts-that-show-alberta-picks-up-the-tab Go outside and get some fresh air, you need to get away from your keyboard.

  5. In 2018 VIA Rail received almost $400,000,000 in a Federal Government subsidy and still lost another $272,000,000..... Their customers pay no Station Improvement Fees, Rail Canada Navigation surcharges, no Rail Security fees.....

  6. Canadian oil company has planted 11 million more trees than Trudeau government Syncrude is one of the world's largest producers of synthetic crude oil from Canada's oil sands and is the largest single source producer of crude oil in Canada. This year alone the company has been able to cover around 400 hectares with over one million trees and shrubs. “It was tough to do this work during the pandemic, however, safety has always been a top priority at Syncrude and we had the protocols in place to ensure everyone’s health and safety”, Eric Girard, Syncrude’s vegetation specialist told a re

  8. Come on now Jaydee, be nice. The worst thing of all is to surround yourself with people who think exactly the same as you - you're guaranteed to never grow. Are you completely right in everything you believe, is deicer, am I? Unlikely. The truth lies somewhere in-between, let's move in that direction.

  9. The difference between good government and bad government(Harper and trudeau) can be seen by reading this article. We all know why Payette was chosen. If it were John Payette with exactly the same professional background, he wouldn't have been chosen. Apparently, there is huge worry among experts on how the decision making would be done in a constitutional crisis. So yeah, it actually is really important. You get what you vote for.

  11. Hi Kip, you're entitled to believe what you read and hear. I believe there's a very different (true) story out there and this guy is playing the victim card based on race and religion. I'm not sure what his intent or end game is but whatever it is he can enjoy flying on another airline or driving to his next destination.

  12. Nope. Any business that rides the "black-owned" declaration is not innocent. You understand the difference, right? I'm not opposed to a black owned business, I'm opposed to a black owned business that attempts to leverage the fact that they are back-owned for political gain. Black dude owns a business and I'm a customer based on normal market forces - black dude owns a business and displays a sign saying "black-owned" and I am not a customer.

  13. So, some drunk guy causes an accident, then threatens the innocent female victim with a machete, leaves the accident, crashes into two other police cars in his attempt to flee and you're more concerned with his welfare than the police officers dealing with the mess - how very Liberal of you. By my count, something like 5 criminal acts. Do I care about the welfare of the "accused"? I have to answer honestly and say; not much. If some lowlife scummy **bleep** was to crash into my wife's car and then threaten her with a machete, well, I care exactly zero for his welfare. Of course he has rig

  17. all a "Like" is, is clarification that someone happens to share your opinion or agrees with our statement. Using it as a statistical measure is impossible without knowing how many people actually read the post and also taking into account those who do not respond at all. This is where we find society in the era of social media. Likes are given value where no value exists. The only value a like provides is a quick shot of dopamine to the original poster.

  18. E= MC Energy = Mass x Speed of Light squared. If you were to strip naked and run around in a circle at the speed of 298 KM/sec (the speed of light) it could be possible for you to ***** yourself.....! Should you determine that you are not physically capable of achieving that speed at your age, you can easily achieve the same result by voting liberal in the next election!

  20. The root of the problem is that the definition of racism depends on who, where and why and it is very hard to nail down. All humans develop attitudes about how the world works and prejudices that guide their choices based on their lived experience. I don't mean "prejudice" in a bad way. Here's a small example; one day when my son was 6 years old a dog jumped up on him while waiting for the school bus and he got several painful scratches on his arm and leg. The dog, which some parent had brought along to the bus stop, was not aggressive just poorly trained. For years after this e

  22. I think biggest reason people voted for Tump was Hillary. They are going to vote for him again too I suspect. Like Wolfhunter has said many times he is probably the most unlikable and easiest political to beat ever. Just lay out a half viable alternative. A basic plan for reasonable governance. The Democrats are determined to defeat themselves at all cost. What a bloody mess

  23. The guy on the plane refused to put a mask on his three year old and then got the plane riled up which is the reason the flight was cancelled. He refused to get off the plane and refused to follow repeated requests - all the while on a pass that was given to him and his family by another employee. Getting the plane all worked up made the situation even worse and hostile. Any suggestion that his three year old wore a mask is false if what I heard from the crew onboard is true. So from my selfish standpoint, f*ck this guy and any negative impacts his actions may have on travel privileges for emp

  24. The employee benefits were cancelled because, unless WestJet is different from other airlines, the employee is responsible for the behaviour of whomever they give the pass to . That is normally well covered in explanation of pass benefits and responsibilities. That is why most airline employees are damn damn careful re who they extend their passes to.

  25. Right. Stop them in their tracks and "no bail" until their court date. Many of these instigators are arrested, charged and released and then they are out the next night doing the same sh!t. Throw them in jail until their court date and the problem is greatly diminished.

  26. Congrats WJ. Hard to begin to describe how badly that was handled by all of your staff. Lots of layers, but the bottom line is the outcome is a PR disaster. Everybody is seeing some issues on flights dealing with customer compliance issues for passengers aged 3-93. But none ended like this and none made the national news. Good luck moving forward. But “no comment” is not a worthy response.

We will see if trudeau will put his money where his mouth is....get tough with real problems rather than lecturing Canadians about drink boxy thingys and penalizing them with useless carbon taxes: https://ca.news.search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=AwrE1xOai1Nf4k0AWJbrFAx.;_ylu=Y29sbwNiZjEEcG9zAzIEdnRpZAMEc2VjA3Nj?p=feds+pushed+to+end+trade+brazil&fr=mcafee&fr2=p%3As%2Cv%3Aw%2Cm%3Anewsdd_sna_t%2Cct%3Avm "A year ago Canada resisted such calls, saying diversifying its trade partners was critical and that any deal would include environmental protections."

  29. Fido...I don't understand your comment. A person who tests positive for the virus may recover without resulting sequelae or may in fact have no symptoms. However, the persons with whom that infected individual comes into contact may not be so fortunate. What is imperative is to identify infected individuals and then protect others from potential spread. If one assumes that everyone is a potential carrier then you can initiate defensive manoevres that will give you an increased probability of avoiding infection.

  30. International route authority flows from bilateral agreements. The terms of the authority speak to designation of use by local carriers (generally how many carriers not who those carriers will be). The agreements are administered by the respective country or region. The volume of frequency is often specified in the agreement. Each signing authority reserves the right to monitor the use of the route authority so as to prevent imbalanced or anticompetitive behaviour. A good example is Canada refusing to grant Emirates increased weekly frequency on the DXB-YYZ city pair suggesting that the s

  32. look, like it or not China is a necessary evil. China spends a lot of money educating their people to perform high tech manufacturing on a scale that nowhere else can equal. Even low tech manufacturing on immense scales. Setting aside any perceived or actual human rights violations, China has set itself up as a manufacturing powerhouse, with which no one else can complete, in almost every sector from Textile to high tech. They do it big and, like it or not, do it well. they also do it CHEAP. So, sure we could stand up to china and bring manufacturing back on shore however th

  35. the escalation of violence involving police and minorities is a self fulfilling prophecy. As the media gets the general public all riled up the black community begin to fear the police and as a result are aprehensive when around police and sometimes to the point of pushing back not in defiance but in fear for their life. That push back can and will cause a situation to escalate. any interaction with the police and another party can go two ways. quiet interaction with a positive outcome (ie Both parties part ways with no violence) or one of the parties can do or say something that t
