I heard Encore is taking over their flying.

True? False?

Seriously? Encore? :lol:

I can see them maybe scaling back a bit like everyone else but I can't picture Encore jumping in there.

Believe it when I see it I guess

As far as I understand it from people directly involved they are having Westjet do their flying for a period of a month and if it is a success and proves it's doable then they will shut down the flight department.

Im pretty sure that Westjet should be able to handle these flights once the logistincs are fully figured out if they are not already.

The oil companies in Canada index their prices to OPEC market prices. They have no obligation to OPEC since we aren't a member state but using OPEC prices has allowed Canadian oil companies to gouge us to the extreme and all they have done is shrug and say they have no control over the market price. Now that OPEC has chosen to tank their prices Canadian oil companies are trying to move away from OPEC prices. Sorry assholes but you can't have it both ways. The government could impose some framework to control their gouging but not with Harper in power.

And where is all that money that made oil executives rich? Probably the same place the Heritage Fund is. Lining the pockets of executives and greasy politicians.

Actually Canadian oil companies get a lower oil price than most other places due to bottle necks in getting it out, typically oil coming out of western Canada is $5-10 under the widely traded and more we'll know WTI (western Texas intermediate) so before you go spouting your mouth off look into it a bit. The only way to get more money for the oil is to build refineries in Canada so we don't have to get it out and can help with situations like where we are in now where our oil has to make its way down to the gulf coast to get refined and then sent back up to Canada as gas.

Because of their financial shape. Who knows if they'll be around in a couple years. To busy fighting with 7F, loosing money. All over a 'spat' with the other fellow.

With 5T being a private company you sure know a lot about their financial health. 5T has 3 Oil companies under contract and other upcoming charter obligations. BTW the codeshare agreement is working as intended so far.

Any more insight?

The Conservatives are already in power. I'd say, change something rather than doing the same thing if you really believe that any politicians have power over corporate flight departments.

Helps when you know the people who don't fly the airplanes. I could share more, but no need to air the dirty laundry here.

So you know people at 5T, a private company, with intimate knowledge of the company financials who provides the information to you? Interesting.

Helps when you know people, who know people. Networking, the social experiment.

Allow me to hijack this thread even more,

http://www.v11lemans.com

This is the motorcycle forum I go on. These people are so nice to each other. We discuss different things all the time and it's obvious it all comes down to our love for the Moto Guzzi. Avcanada should be more like Moto Guzzi.

Is there anyway that this move by said company could be involved with the Fort Hills project start up?
