Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

I like this, finally a thread where people get along and actually agree with each other. Anyway I feel like some blame with sky high real estate prices also belongs on the crooked real estate agents who rather than sell a house as a place to live, raise a family etc, were selling houses as a specula...

Re: Mandatory PCR Test and 3 Day Hotel Quarantine

The people who are going out, biking, walking, taking trips, hiking, the gym, seeing others, grocery stores, shopping are just prolonging the pain for everyone else. The businesses encouraging people to use their “ services” are equally culpable as the ones using them and should be shut down. So no...

Re: Ontario Stay Home Order coming in.

Wtf get your head out of the sand. Mortality rates from Covid is nowhere near 2 percent. BE020 you are a few decimal places off. 0.02 percent would be more accurate.

For the dhc-2 fans out there Six Days and Seven Nights. Flight with Denzel Washington and American Made with Tom Cruise are pretty entertaining.

Re: Should Canadian airlines stop flights to UK, New covid strain.

And on top of that your taxes will pay his salary while he quarantines for 14 days when he returns to Ontario. All the while gyms, ski hills and other small businesses were ordered to shutdown. I guess the rules only apply to the constituents and not the people in power, but hey we need to trust the...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Nope it doesn't really make any sense to close ski hills, gyms, salons for 28 days. Many of these will be small businesses as well. Why should small businesses suffer and the people of Ontario have to sit inside for a month straight. I will tell you why because some fat @#$! that drinks soda and eat...

Re: PT-6 Runaway Causes Ground Collision

I was told around 19 airworthy DHC-7's worldwide. I think Tindi has 4 that are airworthy and I believe they have 5th one that has been scrapped and robbed of parts. Definitely an ultra rare bird but also one hell of a performer. Doesn't use much runway to lift off at gross weight. https://www.skiesm...

For $35 that CATSA massage hopefully has a happy ending. 😉

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Would it even be necessary for people in their 20’s 30’s or even 40’s that don’t smoke, not overweight, have no underlying health issues, etc. to take the vaccine.

Re: Question about Reimbursement of Costs

Honest question though, how do the pilots or flight attendants at Swoop make enough to survive living in the golden horseshoe? Are most of the pilots commuting from other cities?

Re: Moderna Vaccine shows 94.5% effectiveness

People who assume the industry will recover rapidly have forgotten a few things. -People and businesses will not forget the money they lost, and will be as reluctant as ever to book for any trips that are not necessary. -It’s not just this disease. It’s the next one. Any whiff of COVID-21 or anythi...

I think "lack of thinking that got them to that point," would be a more accurate statement.
