  1. If you're looking for the incipient event you're going to have to go back a little further than the 737-Max.
  2. This article on CBC has 7200 comments! The vast majority, by my assessment, say that Trudeau's campaign has been the dirtiest by his disavowing of his ethical violations!
  3. Well, as a Captain, nobody will tell me I can't say "Merry Christmas". Nobody will tell me not to say "Ladies and Gentlemen" either. They might "suggest" that I use a different salutation but as far as forbid the standard - nope, won't happen. But, you see, the whole process is more insidious - for those minions that they can control; a directive about what terms to use. For those they can't; gentle reminders, alternate suggestions and mild disapproval, which ultimately/eventually has the same effect.
  4. If it was by itself, maybe. Can't address a group by saying "ladies and gentlemen" - might hurt somebody's feelings. Can't say "Merry Christmas" - might cause offence. Can't wear a poppy because it "glorifies war." Can't make a slightest comment about immigration without being labeled a racist. Can't use chopsticks without someone accusing you of cultural appropriation. You don't see a pattern?
  5. Molson's used to put them in 24s of Canadian.
  6. I totally understand the restrictions one must place on oneself when working as a company representative, in uniform - govern yourself accordingly and don't say anything that look bad on twitter or youtube. Got it.
  7. Whether they intended it or not, the CBC and Barton and Tasker have provided clear evidence of an appalling bias. They have shown they are utterly disinterested in being fair. Yes, conservatives already know this. The problem is not that the CBC is biased, the problem is that the general population doesn't care. My hope, please, please, is that the Conservatives win and massively de-fund the CBC. Unlikely, but it's my fervent hope anyways.
  8. The world is gone to hell. Exactly .000002% of the population identifies as neither male or female. What are we doing catering to an extremely small subset of people? Anybody who can't deal with a greeting of "hello ladies and gentlemen" shouldn't be allowed out in public let alone on an aircraft.
  9. Well, Jeeez, if you know me at all you'd know the answer to that question. Don't I have a reputation here? My default is; "We're going to the alternate!" I only land if I have no excuse.
  10. Boooo! No Facebook videos allowed!
  11. Go around? Totally could have made that!
  12. You must be new around here. Jakr's posts and the reasoning behind -no spacebar - has been discussed. You might want to cut him some slack.
  13. Fake or not, who knows. The question you have to ask yourself is; based on the personal integrity demonstrated by JT in the past do you think it's "likely" to be true or does it seem completely out-of-character and therefore implausible?
  14. Well, I don't know if it's the only solution. The problem is that if you give all the power to the people with the money you get a hugely stratefied society with the potential (very likely potential) for exploitation. The converse, of course, is that if you give the masses the ability to reach into the pocket of the people who have money - they'll take it! So there's got to be some sort of balance. Maybe the solution is to have progressive voting authority similar to our progressive tax system - everyone gets at least one vote but the more you pay in taxes the more votes you get.
  15. Personally I think we should back to the old way - property owners get a vote, everyone else "sit down and shut up!" Maybe could be expanded to; "if you don't actually pay any income tax - no vote for you!"
  16. Probably thinking all the "good" codes had been taken. Haha!!!!
  17. We cut the end open and wash/rinse them out - make excellent freezer bags and lunch bags.
  18. You keep posting this. You're right it isn't a 2nd amendment guarantee but gun ownership is the established norm. If you, or anyone else, has a problem with that why don't you move to a jurisdiction without guns? I can tell you this - the plan to remove the legally owned guns from licensed gun-owners will fail and will lead to more heartache and pain for the anti-gun crowd than they can imagine. If you think it will be sunshine and roses you're in for a rude awakening.
  19. I must say Wolfhunter, you're very well-spoken. You have a way of reducing issues to their core - did you miss your calling as a journalist? Why are you hanging around here with the likes of us?
  20. If a properly licensed firearms owner wants to take his legally owned and legally stored rifle to a licensed, inspected and safely run range to shoot holes in paper targets why do the wishes of anyone else come into it? Personally, I think golf courses are a massive waste of space that could be used for better purposes, same for downhill skiing, and motorcycles and don't even get me started on jetskiis!
  21. We are now faced with the possibility of a minority Trudeau government propped up by the economically illiterate NDP and Greens. The consequences of that would be devastating for Canadians. Truer words were never spoken. https://nationalpost.com/opinion/columnists/jean-its-up-to-ontarios-voters-to-save-canada-from-trudeau/wcm/136b47bc-a284-43cf-8186-bc40cd8c8a32
  22. While I hope that Canadians wake up and make JT a one-term PM, I do not hope for this to be true - that's just bad for everyone.
