  1. the only way to rid this country of trudope is to ban women from voting. they vote based on this : not actually on anything worthy of running a country
  2. I dont think the surfers need any help being put in harms way...
  3. the only way to end problem pilot behavior is big fines and heavy enforcement. right now it seems they are handing out bigger fines to little johnny and his birthday gift drone, then they are giving to pilots for flying over people. I'm sure you drop more on lunch with the boys, then you would get fined for something like this. what happened when you got "caught" in PRNP last time? im not a Karen, nor am I a snowflake, but i personally think the skirt thing is a bigger dick move than flying over some Truedope surfers. let us know what happens.
  4. the footage from the drone of the collision would be interesting to see.
  5. im trying to wrap my head around what they are saying... semi autonomous mode ? pilot punched in manual commands? the helicopter software did not recognize the pilot's instructions and chose to ignore them ? what kind of AFCS design is this? or better yet, what kind of double speak are they trying to sell us?
  6. I googled this..."retired Colonel and former SeaKing pilot as well as the former Commanding Officer of 423 squadron" and came up with this. I hope its the article he refers to. https://www.capebretonpost.com/news/local/expert-cyclone-pilot-likely-tried-to-correct-problem-chopper-didnt-respond-460621/

  8. do these "leaks" leaks hurt the reputation of the military? or do they put the lying CO, or the MP who speaks for them, in a precarious position about transparency? IMHO, its obvious who is hurting the reputation. and it's not the witness' or the retired guys. Sajjan needs to go.
  9. "the aircraft did not respond as the crew would have anticipated" is this information recovered from the voice and data recorders? if it is, they should be clear on that. if it's an assumption, then they shouldn't be publishing that, because its not fact. but it follows the typical form of information release, misleading and redirecting.
  10. "I do love me a backyard bbq fight but in the right setting" and its awesome when grandpa wants to get in on it and settle a score with that one son in law who thinks he's all that and more.
  11. you're not obligated to share my thoughts at all, and if you wish to call it arm-chairing, go right ahead. I call it speculation, and I welcome all ideas, thoughts and opinions. life is about that mysterious crystal ball, everyone wants answers immediately, yet the bureaucracy drags it on much longer than it needs to be. my comment is more about the lack of transparency from day 1 that makes things seems like their is an obvious cause, and the powers to be are stalling and deflecting. I really doubt the TSB is investigating this one, and that likely means we wont get a detailed investigation report, just redacted fluff the military puts out after the Minister of said military edits out the things that make them look bad. you're free to disagree. I'm no less professional than you.
  12. i remember the airshow circuit the 412 Pilots would be pumped up by the announcer....Captain Bob is Piloting with 20 years service and a whopping 1500hrs total time which probably included their air cadet flight time. same with the F18 drivers....many many years in service and low hours compared to what we are used to in the commercial end. they really made it sound like they had this impressive resume. I've been following articles on this story, and because they seem to not be very transparent about the whole story, it makes me wonder if the request was made to buzz the tower, and it all went awry.
  13. "Okanagan et al were assimilated by Canadian at the time, which then split, sold, rebranded, resold, rebranded and resold and renamed to the mess it is today" Im not even sure what they call themselves now....lol
  14. if Blackmac was a company, the discussion would end. Dirt calls him Dad, and he named all the dinosaurs himself.
  15. 6 pages since wednesday? what is going on here??? go for a bathroom break and theres a whole new page of stuff.
  16. nooo, dont feel that way, you actually brought some life to the pages for a change. the last time that happened was a month or more ago when we had members wanting to fight people at a BBQ and I honestly cant remember why. I just wanted a prime cheeseburger fresh off the grill.
  17. only high achievers worry about that first capitol. I'm seriously going to go out of my way now to make sure I avoid the use of capitols all together just for your benefit Simps. I might even forego all punctuation and grammar as well
  18. well simpleton, since you are like a cancerous tumor, it is hard to miss when you post. to say you're the first thing on my mind is a stretch though considering the post was made about 9pm last night. you actually were one of the last things i expected to encounter yesterday. I actually would choose a bout of covid 19 instead of interacting with you. today though, a different story, I came here specifically to see what you could come up with as a response. You didn't let me down. It was actually quite good.
  19. if you reached higher than your ballsack on any given day we would be impressed.
  20. "I'd rather get Covis" I know you mean this sarcastically, but no you dont.
  21. one thing i have learned, which you clearly havent, is that this forum, is not, nor ever will be a place for change. Highly doubt you would agree my view is intelligent or not. you wont find me here offering solutions. it's pointless. and if I did try and rally the troops, i would clearly not insult them at the same time.
  22. I generally agree with alot of things Blackmac says....then his crusty ol' fart emerges with comments like this which chap my ***... "As usual moan and groan, sit on your ARSE and do nothing." How do you assume no one is doing anything?? perhaps leave out the parting shots and more people would jump on board. The death of that not to be spoken about association was because of this very reason.
  23. I seriously did not know there were this many in Canada....hmmm....learn something new every day.

  24. "the wife wants to move to YellowKnife or even Nunavut she was looking at life in Ranken Inlet and Iqaluit and wants to go now" Be honest, how much had she been drinking when she said that?🥂
