Sadly the big two airlines have been controlling prices in Canada for several decades and the govt. caves in to them constantly.

Re: Moving back or not?

Re: The state of Canadian politics.

Not really paying attention to this.

Them Albertan's are never happy even when they are making money so just ignore 'em.

Re: Things you wish you could’ve done differently

I wish I had brought a lot of money to buy a house with!
