This coming weekend the Edmonton Eskimos play the Hamilton Tigercats. Those who follow the CFL know the tabbies are playing in Guelph this year as their new stadium is being built. A couple of questions I am looking for answers for. Who will the Eskimos fly with and where will they fly into. Any cha...Jump to post
Its just a game that has been played forever and will always be played....the players change, the rules are tweaked and onward we go.Jump to post
If the travelling public has to pay extra for overweight bags, where is the discount for underweight bags or no bags at all. I guarantee I would fly any airline that discounts my fare by the same per kilo charge that they charge for overweight bags. Afterall, if it is all about money and the extra c...Jump to post
I found out in January. Just a bit of a shock as I didn't present symptoms. Was discovered during a routine physical when my blood sugar came back at a 15-16. Big change in the diet and lots more exercise. I've lost nearly 40 pounds (18kg), 3 inches off my waist and my blood sugar is down to a weekl...Jump to post
I agree with airlines clamping down but agree more with VASU and eagarly await the airlines clamping down on carry on luggage. With airline restrictions on checked baggage increasing, I suspect bigger and more dangerously, heavier carry ons as people try to avoid too much/heavy checked bags. Very li...Jump to post
I booked this flight awhile ago and I now see that it is no longer listed on the Air Canada website. I assume this means that the plane will be full. I chose it because it has been years since I was on a 767 and my final destination is Victoria and this flight had the longest layover in Vancouver. D...Jump to post
Great song, I'm going to see Lightfoot on December 02 in Stratford Ontario. Always wanted to and now I'm going.Jump to post
One person patrol cars are SOP for most of Canada as far as I know. Some may have 2 person cars but that would be a negotiated contract item in most cases I suspect. Economics always seems to take precedence over Officer safety. While those who make to financial decisions are home in bed, safe and s...Jump to post
Don't get too excited about any return of this individual to the USA. He has appeals available that can keep him here in Canada for years to come. My personal feeling is he should be back in the States by now, the decision was made and he should have been taken directly from the courthouse to the bo...Jump to post
Boo frickity hoo. With any luck the S.O.B. won't come back to the game ever. Baseball will be better off without him and guys like him. All that talent and no morals, what a shame.
One must keep in mind that this award can be given to any member of an armed service whose country is part of the Commonwealth. When one considers this it makes the awarding of this medal even more rare. 1350 total amongnst all Commonwealth nations makes this the premier bravery award imho.
My everyday firearm is a Beretta Model 96D .40 cal semi automatic pistol with controlled expansion rounds. We have access to a number of other weapons ie: shotguns, MP5's, assorted sniper equipment etc. In addition we have a number of less than lethal use of force options, pepper spray, expandable b...Jump to post
I've put a fiver on the Eagles just for fun but I believe I might as welll have set fire to it. It sure would be a heck of an upset if it happens.
A few years ago on <acronym title="Virgin Express (Belgium)">TV</acronym> there was a clip shot in the wild of this exact confrontation, A solitary killer whale vs. a great white shark. It was no contest, the killer whale won big time. Both were good sized examples but the killer whale's size and st...Jump to post

I will try to remember to add the fourth one when i get my photos back.
AWspicious.... Hamilton has not had a show since 2001, they went out of business owing hundreds of thousands of dollars. This year's show was great in London. The F-14 display was amazing, the C-17 was unbelievable but my favourite was the Heritage flight, F-16/P-51 with Ed Shipley at the controls o...Jump to post

My local radio station reported that the maximum daily charge to park at the new terminal in Toronto will be $77.00 cdn per day. If this is true this is a ridiculous amount of money. Can anyone confirm this figure? On the up side however, the first half hour is only $2.50 cdn. so if one times it rig...Jump to post
For those calling for justice, remember this is Canada where the most you get is 25 years no matter how horrific the crime. This only applies to adult offenders, if this was someone under 18 then the max, unless convicted as an adult, is 10 years. This is another shining example of Canada's thorough...Jump to post
Perseverance pays off every once in awhile. Working child porn is a very disturbing part of Police work and goes largely unrewarded by the public and even other Police Officers. Hats off to all the law enforcement personnel who work this disgusting detail to help keep our kids safe.
The meals being served on china with metal cutlery comes to mind. The staff busted their backsides to make you feel welcome. I know it sounds silly but what I remember most was they had the greatest Italian salad dressing. I've never been able to find it since. I flew Wardair numerous times and the ...Jump to post
Great news, lets hope more and more flights are available through Hamilton as <acronym title="Toronto - Lester B. Pearson International (Malton) (YYZ / CYYZ), Canada - Ontario">YYZ</acronym> is really getting to be a pain to fly out of. Perhaps the new terminal will help but it is more the drive to ...Jump to post
Is it just me or is it gross when your waiter/waitress brings you a cup of coffee or other beverage and places it on the table by placing their hand around the rim of the cup instead of holding it by the handle or holding it near the bottom of the glass.
It drives me crazy when I thank someone for something and their response is " No Problem". The proper response is " you're welcome"
The worst people for saying this in my experience are people who work in the customer service industry, specifically waiters/waitresses.
Well let me tell you a little story about good old fashioned politically correct socialist Canada. Our courts take into consideration race when it comes time for sentencing. Our legislation provides for alternative types of sentencing for aboriginal peoples and must take into account the " systemic ...Jump to post
36 years ago today, American Airlines placed the launch order for 50 DC-10s. 25 firm orders and options for 25 more.
The DC-10----- next to Concorde, the greatest looking airliner ever produced (IMHO)
