Pardon my french - but, F*CK
That low-life scumbag must leave now. He hasn't done anything for the company but to line his own pockets. Except maybe, pumping out the Tango, Jetz, Jazz, and ZIP color schemes for us to shoot
Let's see what he's done in short - taken an essentially monopolized airline (which by definition would mean endless profits; a cash-cow if you will) and turned it into a dismal failure worth absolutely nothing, essentially. They now own little or none of their aircraft, and continue to lose money left and right. And with their spiraling dive towards terra-firma, they unfortunately took Canadian Airlines with them.
Granted, Canadian Airlines had their own share of problems (mostly due to the poor Wardair buy-out, and the governments' favouritism towards Air Canada at the time), but Milton took the merger in the completely opposite direction by making things extremely miserable for CP
employees. All the countless stories of how the cronies at AC
employees right off the bat is really sickening - such as AC
guys coming in with garbage bags demanding all CP
memorabilia be thrown out, or risk losing your job. Or the time when CP
employees lost all non-rev priviledges to watch AC
employees take their seats. And so on and so forth. Boy do I ever feel sorry for the CP
guys at YUL
And who could forget, the pilots seniority dispute : CP
pilots wanting 1-1 and AC
only giving 1 for 3. It seemed as though whatever way there was to lower employee morale, Milton was at the forefront of it all, doing whatever he could to rub salt in the wounds.
And now we fast-forward to today... with an airline losing endless amounts of money everyday, and only NOW does he finally get the brainy-idea to transfer the main "focus" on their international product. Wow. I'm speechless. I think anyone with an IQ
above room temperature could've figured that one out.
Milton simply has no business savvy, and has forever lacked a fiscally viable operational plan. And to put the final nail in the coffin, this sick bastard can resign anytime and walk away with a $6 million severance package.
Yeah, I think it's safe to say he should go .
