  1. This probably hurts the NDP in Alberta too. They have touted the 'Carbon Tax' as a good idea.
  2. The difference between trip costs of a -200 and a -300 is about 10% higher whereas the capacity is 50% higher so go for the bigger one every time.

  10. In my early days I was a baggage handler in YVR. As we were loading a 747 for YYZ an elderly gentleman was escorted down to the ramp as he wanted to be sure his mutt was loaded with great care. The mutt was blind in one eye, was missing half an ear and could barely stand on all four legs. He watched and was satisfied that his mutt was going to be ok as we placed the mutt in a cage in the bulk hold right next to a brown bear in a cage. I always have wondered if the mutt died of fright on that trip.

  17. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed a major gathering of the Canadian First Nations peoples. He spoke for about an hour about his plans for increasing their present standard of living across many areas in Canada. Thou very vague in detail with many ums ahs and ers ,he spoke about his ideas for helping his indigenous brothers and sisters. Afterwards the head Chiefs presented him with a nice hand made plaque inscribed with his newly given Native name of "Walking Goose" which he gratefully accepted with many pictures taken of this historic event. After Trudeau left, a news reporter asked the Chiefs how they came up with this new Native name for him. They explained to him that "Walking Goose" is a name given to a bird that is so full of **bleep** that it can no longer fly!!!!
  18. I had never imagined that a bigger rudder would be an option.
  19. A little sound economic thinking: Inside Jason Kenney's plan to kickstart Alberta's economy — and heal the province's divisions
  20. To my friends and relatives that say "I never saw this coming:, I reply "For 40 years I have called the Liberals 'The Lieberals'.
  21. I live in Edmonton. Every winter when I hear somebody bemoaning climate change and especially Global Warming I say "Bring it on".
  22. Did the Liberals in caucus take a vote to exclude these two duly elected MP's or did the cabal at the top just issue an edict?
