Bless those Newfoundlanders,
We need fuel, they take us in...
A blizzard shuts down our airports, they take us in...
Terrorists shut down aviation in our country, they take us in...and always with a smile and a kind word.
Heres to you, Newfies (Highguy raises beer mug, and drinks deep.)

The same to those in Nova Scotia and Moncton. On 9/11 they did the impossible to accomodate all those aircraft that were bound to the US and from the US beyond. LH even named one of their then newly delivered A343s after the cities of Gander and Halifax.

Opps, didn't mean to leave out the Nova Scotians, and New Brunswikians (probably not the correct term.)
Its a bit early to hoist another beer for them all, but I swig some coffee in there honor. Great folks.
Thats one of the reasons I live so close to the border with BC, cause Canadians are the best. I visit frequently.
