Is everyone missing the obvious here? I mean as much as I hate credit cards and all the BS that surrounds flying today, if I were to book a flight I would use a credit card. Airline fails to deliver, you refuse to pay them, and the Credit Card company should back you up, issue a refund, then fight it out with the airline. The Airline should have no say whatsoever in the matter. Otherwise what's the point of using a credit card?

OTTAWA — A growing chorus of voices is demanding Ottawa force airlines to reimburse cash-strapped travellers the cost of trips that were cancelled because of the pandemic, rather than offering a 24-month travel credit.

Just on Wednesday, support for a House of Commons petition demanding the federal government require airlines to refund trips jumped from 500 in the morning to well (sic) nearly 5,900 by late afternoon.

O'Henry the Irony

For those O'Henry fans out there, here is a delicious real life example of irony.

Quote:
OTTAWA (Reuters) - China does not appear to understand that Canada's judiciary is independent, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday, taking a rare public swipe at Beijing at a time when bilateral ties are poor.

China says Canada must free Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, who is fighting extradition to the United States. She was arrested in the province of British Columbia in December 2018.

Canadian officials have repeatedly said they cannot intervene in the case.

"Canada has an independent judicial system that functions without interference or override by politicians," Trudeau told a daily briefing.

Except of course where it involves Trudeau and SNC Lavalin. Then it can be bent any which way he chooses. So, it would seem that not only China does not understand our legal system. Every Liberal cabinet minister does not either.

Meme says it all.

Amnesty International, usual suspects call on Canada to open border to refugees from the U.S.

Quote:
As countries around the world close their borders to contain the spread of COVID-19, Amnesty International is calling on Canada to set an example of humane treatment of refugees and open its borders to asylum seekers from the U.S.

In an open letter signed by, among others, former Liberal cabinet ministers Lloyd Axworthy and Allan Rock, Amnesty International urges Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to show “much needed global leadership when it comes to providing meaningful human rights protection for migrants and refugees.”

Canada will need newcomers after coronavirus pandemic, immigration minister says

Quote:
The role immigrant labour is playing to keep the country moving during the COVID-19 pandemic is proof of why robust immigration must continue in the aftermath, federal Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino said Friday.

While the health and safety of Canadians must be assured before the doors of the country can be opened as widely again, they will be, Mendicino said.

He believes Canadians would want it that way.
Nope.

With unemployment at near zero and domestic wages that need to be depressed, let's open the doors!

Interesting neither wife nor I have seen any sign of that $300. As a matter of fact we have not even seen our notices of assessment let alone our carbon ripoff rebate.

Just...clueless.

Perhaps the Laurentian Elite want it that way, but the other 90% of the country's population is just trying to make ends meet, thankyouverymuch.

Trudeau falls short of echoing US condemnation of China's Hong Kong power grab

Quote:
When asked about Hong Kong, and the strict measures that Beijing has imposed, eliminating the long-standing one country two nations system, Trudeau was hesitant to condemn Beijing's actions.
'Course not! Can't bite the hand that's feeding him...
