Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

“The fact that the doctors highlighted that if all goes according to plan, we should be able to have a majority of Canadians vaccinated by next September, puts us in very good stead,” Trudeau said, speaking from the front steps of Rideau Cottage. One of Canada’s top doctors said shortly afterwards t...

Re: Non Aviation Employers Don't Respect Pilot Experience

Reviving this thread to ask, who's gotten a non flying job, any leads or ideas? I don't know what it is, being furloughed or just being in a different industry. There has to be some jobs that look favourably on us? It took me months to figure that out. It seems employers either think that we are no...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Maybe a few things to point out in order to see context..... Nobody likes fatality rates but as that guy Benjamin Franklin said, the only sure things in life are death and taxes. I can't argue with that. The leading cause of death is cancer, second is heart disease, third is this strain of covid. I...

Re: Cargo TA

Will every other group that gets involved take a pay cut? Will cargo dispatch make 10 percent less? Will cargo load masters make 10 percent less? Will cargo managers make 10 percent less, or the station attendants loading the cargo flights make 10 percent less? I guess I could be on board if we are ...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Now that we are nearly a year into this studies specifically about the efficacy of masks are rolling out as in this article. https://fee.org/articles/new-danish-study-finds-masks-don-t-protect-wearers-from-covid-infection/ And here is the link to the study https://www.acpjournals.org/doi/10.7326/M20...

Re: Moderna Vaccine shows 94.5% effectiveness

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Scientists must get the same twitch when they see people writing and talking "because of science" as that pilots get when the media report about airline incidents and write "the pilot". And so, like scientists, we simply ask that people trust us, and let us do our jobs. Reading ...

Mbav8r I didn't realize all these cases in Manitoba were from those people protesting outside! Well shit why didn't they release this science to the world! Why was Trudeau out protesting setting a bad example for us? So you support masks outdoors policy? Is this because of science? Last I heard bein...

If we had to say who was more radical, Dr. Roger, who basically calls this a bad flu. And then the people who thought it was worth turning the world upside down over this virus. I'm pretty certain Roger is the least radical, even though I don't agree completely with what he says. I think its radical...

flyguy73, May I ask if you understand IFR, why is it you come on here and say the fatality rate is 3 percent? I don't know your motivation to blatantly lie about things you claim to understand.

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

I don't feel I can have a rational discussion with someone like flyguy73 who nearly a year into this doesn't understand IFR. Maybe the reason there is so much ignorance around this is the media doesn't mention IFR. The Who estimates nearly a billion people in the world have now had covid. The actual...

Re: Moderna Vaccine shows 94.5% effectiveness

Serious question. Will masks just be a permanent part of the pilot uniform. In 5 years will we be able to wear a mask for protection or will they force us to remove the mask at some point? I remember a few years ago when I went into a gas station and was told I have to remove my hood or I can't come...

Re: Moderna Vaccine shows 94.5% effectiveness

Ah that's right. This vaccine will just erase the memory of all the Porter pilots who were off work for an entire year (and counting) . People will also just forget how when family and friends were on their final legs they were denied entry to the hospital to have their final visits. Sure normal wil...

Re: Moderna Vaccine shows 94.5% effectiveness

What makes you think a vaccine will make airlines return to normal? Did you not hear the term "new normal"? Covid has people terrified and accepting that things will just have to be different going forward. Many businesses are working from home, meeting on zoom etc. Let's assume every Cana...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Preparing for the worst doesn’t mean we have experienced the worst. I just asked my friend in Niagara who’s a nurse what it’s like right now. Last I heard staff were playing games all summer because it was dead. “It’s not busy with covid - I think St. Catharines had 4 or fewer cases last I checked (...
