To disparage others and their choices because you think you're entitled to the ''truth'' about what everybody should be doing to make this a better industry shows a lack of adherence to moral and ethical principles = lack of integrity. And as long as the level of disrespect to fellow pilots remains as shown on this blog, we will never stand together for a common cause.
I understand what you're trying to say, and we all want working conditions to keep improving, but misprizing those who chose a different approach to their lifes and careers, in the name of improving the national industry is not the way. And you're right, it doesn't make you sound like a liberal, more like a member of the National Socialist Canadian Workers' Party.
Dude, I'm far from a socialist when I'm advocating for people to use freemarket and supply and demand in their favor.
No where did I approve of government handouts.

Now the tables have turned in the last 5 years with regards to wages, and he’s telling us Canadian Pilots now lack integrity.
You're right, despite my real degrees I earned when I was only 18 and great marks, I did manage to completely bomb that last test, along with a good chunk of the rest of the class, frankly it was my fault, I shouldn't have gone to that school, really showed my lack of skill as I breezed through flight training down south in tailwheel, backcountry, floats, etc and with my progression through the industry. You don't want to be like a failure like me lol
Also who the hell works for 16k a year? My first job as a 250hr wonder I was making well over double that.
I'm saying people should keep their own house in order instead of moving to places where other did the work and eating their scraps like locusts
But you're right, why listen to me when you can listen to folks like that other guy who's been flying longer than I've been alive and can't even crack 6 figures or work a decent sched
The issue is the culture, even years back nearly no one in the US who earned their CPL would be working as a dock hand, where as if you said I don't want to work the dock here, everyone jumped down your throat. Gee, wonder why you have the pay difference you do between a imaginary line on the ground.
Plus WTF is up with the pilot self flagellation you see all the time? Keep saying you're not a professional and looking down your nose at people who made money or helped other make money, bet the companies salivate when they here that stuff.
And your kids and wife are still Canadian right? So wouldn't working to leave their country of citizenship a better place for them be in their benifit?
