Re: Dinosaur Needs Help

Both Skype and What'sApp allow groups or virtual teams to communicate.

I think the matter is that Skype is simply the older product, been around way longer. Meaning it was developed at a time...

Re: Dinosaur Needs Help

The problem with WhatsApp is that it's always stubbornly tied to a phone number. Also, you still need a smartphone to have a local installation on your laptop PC, Microsoft or Mac, doesn't matter. ...

Any Skype call to any other Skype User is for free, no matter if it's audio or with video. I've used it for years and love it. It works on MSFT Windows, on Android and iOS, and best of all, you don't...

Re: GTAA (Go To Another Airport)

There is a megabus Service from Buffalo Airport to Toronto. The trip is for around 3 hours. Except Tuesday and Wednesday it seems to run daily.

How would US immigration react ( especially in...

Re: GTAA (Go To Another Airport)

I think the main question for politicians and lawmakers is why they want to do so much extra checks for Covid at airports? . It's simply not that the virus gets into Canada that way, the virus is...

Re: real estate prices in Canada sustainable?

It's quite possible this will happen, especially if the Bank of Canada would gradually raise interest rates to 5% and more. At least on contrast to the ECB in the Euro-zone they seem at least...

Re: GTAA (Go To Another Airport)

I don't quite understand your suggestion "the next flight going to hub back through Toronto".

To me it would be Billy Bishop with Porter to Montreal, or Halifax, or Ottawa, and then another...

Re: GTAA (Go To Another Airport)

I even find the statement "if this stuff concerns you" very concerning. If I would portray the same attitude in my job, I'd be fired on the spot.

To me this is an inadequacy and a shortcoming...

Re: Job Offer in Nova Scotia - Looking for Brutal Honesty

Partially this is also true for the UK.
However in the UK they don't smile friendly into your face and say that everything is awesome when in reality it's not. I often miss that in Canada.

Well, it's certainly never been like this prior to Covid at YYZ and I've travelled often via YYZ, never had any issues like this at all.

Re: Job Offer in Nova Scotia - Looking for Brutal Honesty

I think you took the right choice. Canada is nice, Canada is a great experience but I also think, it's an experience only for a while or a certain time in your life. In the end Canada is actually in...

Re: real estate prices in Canada sustainable?

The thing is overall property prices will fall with utter certainty as interest rates go up. You just have to look at Canadian salaries as well. There are only 24 hours in a day.

Re: GTAA (Go To Another Airport)

Since you work in the industry, I have a couple of questions for you:

Do you think these issues are more happening on certain days of the week, or more at weekends?

Are they more in the morning...

Re: GTAA (Go To Another Airport)

So, I've read as well. Nothing on YUL or the other airports.

Just wondering how this plays out in real life in YYZ? If one is transferring via YYZ, would they then let passengers with connecting...

Yes, that would make sense. And in YUL and the other international airports they don't have that problem at all? like keeping planes for hours on the tarmac? or endless queues at immigration? It's...

I did that once, KLM to Montreal and Westjet to Toronto, arrived at the domestic terminal, everything was "a breeze". This was a couple of months before the pandemic.

Re: Thinking of Importing two bikes into Canada.

Re: Ukraine

The thing is that tactical nuclear weapons have rather limited fallout regarding radiation, and remember, so far, Putin hasn't be able to capture any of the major cities in the Ukraine.

Re: Ukraine

I like to be wrong on this and am hoping that you're right. The only thing we do know about Putin's thinking is that in his mind the Ukraine, their culture and people have no right to exist.

I would expect that Putin will make use of some tactical nuclear strike at a major Ukrainian city in order to blackmail the...
