  1. More than 100 people march in a city of 1.336 million. Are we getting tired or is this more of an issue for the press vs reality? https://globalnews.ca/video/6432418/calgarians-march-in-solidarity-for-womens-rights/
  2. From the various reports on PPrune, AVHERALD ETC, there are numerous reports of 738 over runs, excursions etc. What is wrong vs the actions / reports of previous 737 incidents.?
  3. Re Megan and Harry and their son, they are welcome to visit but if they want to become permanent residents , then they are subject to the procedures in place to allow that. No let, no favoritism, just what is done within the act. Mind you swearing allegiance to the crown should not be a problem for them.
  4. You have to add the new surcharge I guess. Was this ever settled? https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/federal-court-orders-westjet-employee-testify-competition-probe-swoop-1.5115687
  5. Megan flew on WestJet to a Canadian Hamlet (according to this story), the Hamlet was of course Victoria. HEIRMILES Meghan Markle ‘sneaked’ back to Canadian mansion on £134 budget flight Aletha Adu 12 Jan 2020, 9:30 Updated: 12 Jan 2020, 9:58 Play Video MEGHAN Markle was apparently sneaked back to her Vancouver Island mansion on a £134 budget flight. The Duchess of Sussex, 38, fled the UK in the wake of her and Prince Harry's bombshell announcement to quit as royals, which they released days after returning from Canada. 7 Meghan Markle jetted back to Canada on a budget £134 flightCredit: James Whatling Meghan skipped Kate Middleton's 38th birthday celebrations preferring to return to her £11million mansion. It was here the couple told close friends they were trialling a six-week holiday there over Christmas and New Year which was deemed highly successful. She arrived in Vancouver late Thursday, and then took a connecting flight to a nearby hamlet where she and Harry had previously enjoyed a lengthy vacation in November. Markle managed to hide from publicity when she used the Canadian WestJet airline, as the press assumed she was coming on a private jet. Her budget flight could have won the hearts of eco fans who have criticised her and Harry for their carbon footprint. Harry is expected to fly back to Canada after an event next Thursday, and when he eventually returns to Britain it will be the Sussexes’ fifth transatlantic trip in two months. Depending on the flights, they may have cost up to £250,000 and emitted more than 200 tons of carbon dioxide. She has no official UK engagements anytime soon and no rumoured return flight, so she is believed to be staying in North America for some time. Now she awaits news of her future from Harry's crisis talks with The Queen and Prince Charles. Harry and Meghan's two dogs stayed in North America after flying out with them for their Christmas break – in another clue that the break could be permanent. Harry has a “packed” diary next week including an official engagement at Buckingham Palace on Thursday – which could be his last as a working royal, the Daily Mail reports. HOLIDAY HOME Despite numerous media requests, the couple refused to say if they paid for their six-week stay or even confirm who the property belongs to. Neighbours say the sprawling mansion where they stayed is owned by a Russian billionaire, but his name is not on any public paperwork. One local, who did not wish to be named, told The Sun: “I was very surprised to hear they were staying there because it’s always been a mystery about who actually owns it. "It doesn’t seem the sort of place a royal couple would go.” "The mystery over the property’s ownership is likely to raise concerns over the couple’s acquaintances as they seek “financial independence”. An estate agent who helped sell it in 2014 said the new owner included a non-disclosure agreement as part of the deal. 7 Neighbours claim the holiday home is owned by a Russian billionaireCredit: Goff Photos 7 Harry and Meghan refused to reveal information of the owner or if they paid to stay in the Canadian mansionCredit: Goff Photos 7 The Mille Fleurs home would have cost more than £100,000 rentCredit: Goff Photos BLENDING IN Their new Canadian neighbours told us previously, they seemed "just like regular guys" who "went to the Fickle FIg farm shop and stopped for coffee just like everyone else". While they were on holiday last month, Harry put on a fake Canadian accent and covered his face while in a Vancouver shop - leaving a mistaken worker thinking he was Prince Andrew. He was browsing the shelves of Lilaberry in Sidney last month. Shopkeeper Chris Stephen realised the 35-year-old was a member of the Royal Family, but didn't quite get the name right. She said: "I gave them a demo of this scarf and as I took it off he said, 'is that real fur?' And I said, 'no, it's not real, I wouldn't be carrying real fur. "I'm looking in these lovely blue eyes with the ginger eyebrows. "That's when I said 'has anyone ever told you you look like' - and I was thinking of him, but it came out as Prince Andrew." https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10720885/meghan-markle-sneaked-back-to-canadian-mansion-on-134-budget-flight/
  6. Published 18 January 2020 https://www.royal.uk/statement-her-majesty-queen-0 Statement from HM The Queen. Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family. I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life. I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family. It is my whole family’s hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life. ENDS Statement from Buckingham Palace The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives. As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for Royal duties. With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations. While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty. The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their wish to repay Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home. Buckingham Palace does not comment on the details of security arrangements. There are well established independent processes to determine the need for publicly-funded security. This new model will take effect in the Spring of 2020. ENDS

The force, officially launched by US President Donald Trump last month, posted a picture of the uniform to its Twitter account. The uniform in the picture has a woodland camouflage design with badges embroidered on the arm and chest. Reacting to the uniform, many critics had the same question: "Camo in space?"

  9. Perhaps not, it all depends upon who you are listening to. But their ads clearly show who owns them. So we now have Swoop that I guess is built to fail / kill other LCC's in Canada. They don't have enought aircraft to back up their operation in case of a mechanical yet are still announcing new services and bottom pricing the market.
  10. I imagine the sims will simulate MCAS when a software update is available.
  11. better yet for AirCanada if the Max ever gets cleared and if AC continues on with the plan to keep them.
  12. It certainly does nothing but diminish the corporate brand.
