Purses on the West Coast are smaller than those in Central and Northern Ontario Just saying!

 

While that may be true, it looks like West Coast pilots are using the same 27 lbs Braidner survival kit as many pilots in Ontario (as ballast )

A public servant with a grudge??? That doesn't happen does it? Lol

 

Maybe I'll have to call the "Integrity Commissioner" Mario Dionne...apparently TC has had some issues with integrity lately, so you might not be too far off..

I have. in the basket. not really a big deal - they open like lifejackets, not like your car's airbags. usually it's right as they're loading, and the basket's open anyways. if not the basket often rips 'em open anyways. as to in the cabin, they're the same UN number as lifejackets... they're the same co2 charge. but I like 'em outside, the noise of one going off is scary in flight, and they're better stowed in the basket too.
