Flycemair.ca new 705 operator

I noticed two job ads for a start up in YQM called Flycemair.ca

Their website so the same logo as the South African Cemair.

Does anyone know anything about this company?

Absolutely, one list flows both ways! Including Encore bumping up when seniority dictates. How would that work in practice?

This is incorrect, flow doesn't change. The one list pertained to respecting DOH at the Westjet Group seniority.
