    Guess Westjet will have to now hire pilots that fit the CRT diversity criteria instead of skill, aptitude, and experience when the existing pilots quit. So flyer choices will be f(a) ly with a vaccinated pilot that may get a stroke at any time or (b) an unskilled but politically correct pilot.

    Isn’t it interesting how the standard reply is now “vaccinations are the best line of defense”, no matter which organization is talking about their reasoning. The brainwashing that’s occurred over the past 18 months is truly scary and I’m concerned for the near future.

    What Westjet hasn’t figured out yet that in the Great Global Reset the peasants won’t be flying. In fact, the peasants will be lucky If they can feed themselves a year from now never mind flying.

    I got news for Westjet, I’m not willing to fly on a plane with a vaccinated pilot who is at risk of blood clots! I also don’t do business with tyrants! At least this union is doing its job.

    What Mark Porter really said was;
    “We have been severely affected by the loss of revenue during the pandemic, and as the second largest airline in Canada, we must conform to the dictates of the Trudeau government to improve our chances of getting a government bailout.”

    Excellent! Here’s a hint: If it’s a 50% split on a ridiculous idea, it’s probably not in your company’s best interest to pursue it.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
