  1. I know most won't agree with me but here goes! I believe that this whole affair has been blown totally out of proportion worldwide but particularly in Canada. It is in Justin Trudeau's best interest to keep the (taxpayer bought) media spotlight on lockdowns, fear mongering, travel restrictions, Covid hotels, vaccines etc. He has completely messed this up and yes, I blame him and him alone. He's the leader and for once he should actually be held accountable. The other reason(s) is when the media circus winds down and eventually it will, the Liberals will have to face the myriad s
  2. Fair enough Jeff. My point is this, our government has consistently missed the mark at every step and there's no sign of that changing in any meaningful way. This virus is definitely more dangerous than the seasonal flu but at what point ($) do we throw in the towel? I'm not advocating a full open up at all but we need to (and still haven't) properly protected the elderly and the immuno-compromised until such time that they can get their vaccines. This is still a 99+% survivable virus. Yes there are and will continue to be people more adversely affected than others. That's the way it goes
  3. Well, since the flu has disappeared and we've now spent ourselves almost to the point of complete financial oblivion, what do you think? Wouldn't change a thing? Everything done so far was right on point?
  4. I really don't care what "most" Canadians favour. Most Canadians don't have a clue and will happily give up mine and everyone else's rights at the drop of a hat.
  5. Who could have imagined a Quebec based, dirty oil burning, carbon spewing company would receive a bailout from the federal government? Tour operator Transat to get $700M loan from Canadian government | Seeking Alpha
  6. That's from the movie Strategic Air Command with Jimmy Stewart. Good movie, also has some fantastic B-47 footage as well.
  7. Not sure what you mean by that? An AC/TS linkup would have had a stranglehold on TATL routes. The EU didn't like it because it was horribly anti-competitive. Why should the taxpayer be expected to backstop that deal? If TS is viable then they'll make it but I don't think they are or will.
  8. If AC has the option to walk on this deal and doesn't I'll be stunned. Old aircraft (for the most part), high seniority pilots, cratered demand and the EU is not fond of the idea either. FWIW, there's now at least four TS A330's in Marana.

  10. What's your issue with this statement, Malcolm?
  11. Of course you're not more prone to getting it, you either do or don't get it. The chances of a much worse outcome from Covid is absolutely attributable to obesity.
  12. Not far at all but that’s pretty beefy wing structure in that area. Scary deal regardless!
  13. The most effective treatment for Covid-19 is staying in good health. Age followed by obesity are the major risk factors for this disease. You will however, never hear any health authority at any level tell people to take responsibility for their own health. This is the nanny state that we now live in.
