  1. There is going to be lake fill at YTZ with or without a runway extension and with or without the C Series to accommodate the amended RESA requirement. The runway might as well be extended at that time. It is also nice to see that the Liberals have also reached the "f--k these guys" stage with the City of Toronto as did Harper before them.
  2. I could probably take this on, but I probably would want to move it to phpBB.
  3. I doubt Onex would sell for what Ottawa is likely to be offering.
  4. Clearly this post tempted fate because the touch screen is now unresponsive.
  5. Other than having my dogs at my feet all day I hated every minute of it.
  6. I think we have to accept the possibility that Ottawa is at least okay with the airlines failing.
  7. There was a time in my life when I just had to have the latest Blackberry and I blew through five Blackberries in about three years, before that I had to have the smallest phone until I ended up with a Nokia about the size of a hotel bar of soap but now I just don't really care anymore.
  8. I can't be bothered to replace my iPhone 6, it still works fine and layoffs are coming.
  9. According to Wikipedia the last software update was 12.4.8 on July 15th 2020.
  10. I would swear my iPhone 6 received a software update very recently.
  12. So... the US is not experiencing an abundance of light crude? The US refiners don't have economies of scale in their favour? YVR isn't dependent on kerosene from Washington state? and, the environmental policies being implemented aren't going to disincentivize refining in Canada? Even the most activist Democratic president wouldn't go half as far as we propose to go with punitive climate policies.
  13. Because the Americans are drowning in light crude. Jet fuel for YVR is going to be barged in from Cherry Point in Washington which already provides more than half of YVR's fuel. Canadian refiners can't compete with their economies of scale. If we're stupid enough to let Trudeau cut our throats all those pipelines that carry Canadian crude and natural gas south are going to be carrying American gasoline, kerosene, natural gas and propane north before the decade is out.
  14. This climate madness isn't going to end until Liberal voters in Ontario and Quebec can't afford to heat their homes or drive their cars. Until then Trudeau and Freeland are just going to keep escalating the alarmism and punitive policies.
  15. Someone is a long way from home
  16. I won't undertake to speak for him but here is my beef with mask rules. If masks are so great then lets get the party started, start the engines, full speed ahead. Take a mask picture with your whole family on Splash Mountain, take a mask selfie at Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Colosseum. Show off your mask tan line proudly after your Christmas holiday in Cancun. Let us build a monument on the National Mall to all those who taught themselves to use grandma's old sewing machine so they could make Sponge Bob masks for their kids. If masks are the answer then lets get things as near
  17. I do know one of our major airlines will provide travel for the family of a deceased employee for funeral and other affairs-in-order purposes. But not my brother and sister, even in their mid to late thirties they're still drama queens. I would be looking up from hell shouting for them to sit down and shut-up.
  18. I don't think many cabin disagreements between pax and cabin crew are handled particularly well and I am sure I would find fault with both sides, but when the family made a scene they were way out of line.
  19. I wouldn't give my brother or sister passes to attend my own funeral.
  20. If you're an eccentric millionaire an F-104 is a much better bang for your buck.
  21. I'm not privy to westjet's yields but I was flying to LGW regularly for a while and every WS1/WS2 flight was nearly full or completely full.
  22. Amazon registered C-FOGJ as N503AZ today, not sure what C-GOGN will be yet but it has been ferried to Lake City Florida too. I only saw one 767 parked outside when I was at YYC yesterday.
  23. No and you wouldn't have either. I couldn't convince her that oil from Alberta is being refined in the US and that fracking has been around for as long as oil wells have been. I also couldn't convince her that the super-heavy train sets operated by VIA Rail and Amtrak are obscenely inefficient.
  24. I had a riveting conversation with a Quebec liberal apparatchik recently who firmly expressed the opinion that the volume of transatlantic flights that were operated pre-covid should never be allowed to resume. Curious as to why she singled out transatlantic flights she explained that the polar route was like taking an acetylene torch to the arctic ice and numerous disaster movie scenarios are imminent.
  25. The links are usually followed by a string of gibberish that goes directly to the linked issue, no login required. I assume those links might only work from behind my office IP address.
