Re: Cannabis Policy ???

Re: Cannabis Policy ???

No making something illegal for only part of the population is the definition of discrimination.
I also laugh at AC policy to strictly all social drug but alcohol. I wonder how many smoking a cigarette or drinking a coffee realize they violate that policy.

Re: Swoop Blacklist

Does the blacklist apply also to the short term contract pilot? They are paying $1200 usd per day so above Westjet pay.

Re: Swoop interview process

When you apply at Swoop you are applying at Westjet. And you don't even need to argue that. Westjet pilot and ALPA will do that for you.
