Re: Corona Virus

I dare Pelmet to post his "wisdom" on a medical professional's forum....I'd enjoy watching the shredding........

If he or anyone else feels that strongly, post it on a forum of ER / ICU doctors ---

Re: Were airlines sacrificed for the Nation ?

The PM of Canada and some Premiers were telling people in Canada to stop travelling and telling those overseas to come home. It was an order from the Government in a moment of national crisis. But who made this possible ? The airlines. At their expense. That is my point. Show me anywhere it was a w...

Re: Were airlines sacrificed for the Nation ?

Right now it is the airlines looking bad for not being able to reimburse the unused tickets (airlines worldwide) for if they did, they would all go under. They all put themselves on the edge of a cliff for flying the passengers home at their own expense, and now the Canadian airlines are being thro...

Re: Corona Virus

Mr Pelmet, Please stop being dangerous. There is no discussion. As some have already said, do what actual experts are suggesting, and face reality. You are proposing anarchy, and a situation that has been studied through modelling, and shown to be pure folly. I implore you to keep your thoughts to ...

Re: In ‘stunning’ reversal, Pickering is asking for airport to be expedited

Pickering not needed. YYZ already has planned new taxiways and 05R / 23 L at the north end.

What is needed is true high speed rail from union to yyz and onward to Guelph /Kitchener / London.

There are plans for that but Ford shelved it.

Perhaps a branch to the east too.

Letters, can be ignored as well, but it's harder to ignore reams of mail showing up in a politician's office. A pile of letters is going to get the attention of someone in the office, and are much more likely to be replied to.

If you were a passenger on this flight and evacuation was being delayed by a passenger struggling with their carry-on baggage, how much force would you use to get that passenger to move along.

They give money away. This is first hand information, btw.
