Air Travelers Neglect in Canada

By George Hatcher

Sunday March 1 is going to be a new day for birds and a bad day for Canadian Air travelers. That’s the day that wildlife control officers go part time. Despite being unable to read this, Vancouver International Airport’s birds will no doubt be extremely grateful, or maybe not– considering that the downsizing/downgrading of personnel is likely to result in more dead birds and more downed planes. So in addition to Canadian Snow, Canadian Ice and Canadian Winter, Canadian air Travelers are also going to be inflicted with Canadian Birds. If I have to fly Canadian, I’m walking. Or I’ll be hitching a jump seat on the next flyby batch of Canadian geese. Heaven help us all.
