It's not a federal holiday, and they don't recognise it in Ontario like in BC...

I always found that strange.

Currently, Remembrance Day is a holiday in all provinces and territories except for Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.

I thought they were expanding out west for a second.

Also interviews on Remembrance day is pretty tacky.

It's not a federal holiday - remember we work under federal employment rules in this business. Besides, life goes on in most of the country... kids go to school, banks are open, airlines fly.

Do you want to survive BC air taxi or not? Get out of that clapped out Navajo or Metro, pin on a poppy, and go get a Q400 job... they aren't out there interviewing because they are flush with applicants coming to them.

Always the wise words of altiplano... You should be Minister of Transport!

This thread wonderfully sums up the current pilot group: “F#ck you, I’ll interview when I say I’ll interview.”

Right, because as a pilot you always have the option and right to choose not to work on federal/provincial holidays. As a matter of fact, you are also always home for your birthday and family events. It's one of the big advantages of being a pilot.

I take it you refuse to work on november 11th then? Or working on november 11th is ok, but a quick interview in your own free time isn't?

Porter might have issues you could complain about, but this whole discussion is just silly.

Hi Everyone,

We are going to be in the YVR area attending other events and thought it would be worthwhile meeting with pilots in YVR who have applied rather than having them fly to YTZ (at their expense.)

Our intent is to fill interviews on the Saturday and Monday morning FIRST and if we need to schedule interviews on Sunday we will. We don't want to miss out on great candidates and having three days open provides more flexibility to interviewing pilots.

Hope that helps to explain any concerns!

Julie

Just please don’t conduct interviews during the time

That would be super tacky and disrespectful. Air Canada had “poppyGate” and I would suggest avoiding their lead.
