  4. Any information on this story? https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/no-one-hurt-after-heli-skiing-chopper-rolls-in-blue-river-1.5058262
  5. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/colin-martin-drug-smuggling-sentence-prison-1.4729857 The most interesting part of this entire business is that now it's legal, the price has crashed and you can't give the stuff away. Oregon is flooded with the stuff according to the news.

That's a lot of people to put into the Vancouver job market. https://www.skiesmag.com/press-releases/standardaero-announces-canadian-centres-excellence-helicopter-mro-services/

  12. For anyone with some time on their hands, have a read of this book and see what happens to business when it is taken over by incompetents, frauds and fakes who know nothing about the industry, its workforce, or its customers.
