    This may be of interest to anyone considering VIA Rail as an employer. My father was a VIA Rail Locomotive Engineer, and it seemed like a pretty good job. https://career.viarail.ca/en/job-detail/LE_SENNETERRE_022022--LOCOMOTIVE-ENGINEER Application Deadline: : 2022-01-28

    If that is the case, https://www.pewresearch.org/politics/2021/06/30/behind-bidens-2020-victory/ My wife votes as an absentee in their elections, so I was curious to see which team Jewish people support, https://www.timesofisrael.com/poll-jewish-voters-favored-biden-over-trump-77-21/

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    No need for "fat-shaming". But, based on our "Fat troops in street" mega-threads, perhaps encourage some to lose weight. I think the taxpayers have more confidence in an organization when their women and men in uniform look good. Hopefully, "flatten the curve". As opposed to, "Let 'er rip!"

    I was not referring to you specifically, Quirky. I meant anybody, on any job.

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    My sister has never said a bad word to me about the CAF. Maybe she privately talked smack about it with her friends, I don't know. But, not in front of our family. I respect her for that, and hold the rather old-fashioned opinon if you are cashing a pay cheque, speak well of your organization.

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    Depends on the employer. I'm on Health Care Spending Account ( HCSA ) until age 75. I'll start worrying about it then, if I'm still around. :)

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    Depends what coverage your employer provides ( including post-retirement ), in addition to basic OHIP. When I read posts about releasing, I remember the massive "getting back in" super-threads. :) Fortunately, the CAF takes people back. Not all employers do.

    These are the smaller communities Canadians are moving to

    Our streets are too steep and winding for a bike lane. It's 40 feet down to the ponds or river. Once you get to the lake there is a great level paved bike path. As a pedestrian, they are challenging enough. As a driver, on a day like yesterday - fuhgeddaboudit. :) It was an independent...
