  1. Today the government's website rather randomly changed the requirements for those who had tested positive. It was 14 - 180 days prior to travel if you've tested positive. It was supposed to be 10-180 as of Jan 15. Today it changed to 11-180 as of Jan 15, or 15-180 days as of now. "If you are now symptom-free, you can provide proof of a positive COVID-19 molecular test when crossing the border, instead of a negative one. The test must have been taken at least 15 and no more than 180 days before (starting January 15, 2022, between 11 and 180 days):" So for anyone who rebooked their flights to 10 or 14 days after their positive test, they now have to rebook them again. SMH...No wonder you can't get through to AC or WS by phone these days.
  2. I called the Covid hotline again and the fellow I spoke to this time said that on the 15th there will be no reference to 14 days anymore, it will just say 10-180 days prior.
  3. That's the only thing that makes sense to me. Otherwise, nobody who tested positive would have been allowed to enter for 14 days from the original rule. Also makes sense that they would give a heads up. Thanks
  4. From the travel.gc.ca website: If you are now symptom-free, you can provide proof of a positive Covid-19 molecular test when crossing the border instead of a negative one. The test must have been taken at least 14 and no more than 180 days before (starting January 15, 2022, between 10 and 180 days): >the initial scheduled departure time of your aircraft >your scheduled entry into Canada by water or land I read that to mean that if you test positive on January 2, 3, 4 or 5, as of January 15 you may travel home as it's been 10 days or more, assuming you have no symptoms. The other way to read that is that this only applies to those who test positive on or after Jan 15. Had it said, "Starting January 15, if you test positive you only have to wait 10 days instead of 14 so the earliest you can return home would be Jan 25...", it would have been clear. Would anyone on here have some insight into this as I've gotten different answers from different people within the industry and the government. The lady on the Canadian Government Covid information line was unaware that there were any changes coming and even asked me where I found such a thing.
  5. That's my understanding. No point taking a test when there's a very real likelihood you'll test positive again months later. Brings up the point that if you were infected months ago but were asymptomatic and/or didn't bother getting tested, you'll likely get a false positive down the road if you travel.

  7. Did these, um, "transvestites" post their "transgressions" on social media for the world to see? Hardly collusion when the information is public knowledge.
  8. Should we all take an AIDS test every time we have sex? Just in case?
  9. Why go every couple of weeks unless you have symptoms?
  10. Air Canada is not the Quebecois airline its critics take it to be — if the CEO’s French isn’t good enough, it might be time to move https://www.thestar.com/business/opinion/2021/11/13/english-french-tongue-tangles-should-remind-quebecers-of-the-limits-of-quebec-inc.html

  12. If only they were allowed to. https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/a-10.1/page-1.html#h-1272 Mandatory provisions in articles of continuance 6 (1) The articles of continuance of the Corporation shall contain (e) provisions specifying that the head office of the Corporation is to be situated in the Montreal Urban Community.
  13. I thought I read somewhere that Air Canada FAs are being put on a 6 month leave without pay.
  14. What's the point of taking this test 3 days before returning? We just came back from overseas and for 48 hours after taking the test we were free to wander the streets, go shopping, do whatever we wished. All things that could have put us into contact with Covid rendering the negative test useless.
  15. Many have reported simply asking for it in-store and receiving a discount. Worth a try, anyway.
