Re: Weaker 'loonie' good and bad news for Canada travel

DrFumblefinger ·
With the fall especially of oil prices (and other natural resources, which Canada is a major producer of), the loonie has indeed fallen compared to the US dollar but kept its relative value with most other currencies, including the pound and Euro. It seems despite a reasonably healthy economic profile, including until recently an almost balanced federal budget and low debt-to-GDP ratio, the value of the Canadian dollar is pegged to its natural resource valuation. With the pullback in the...

Canada’s Top 4 Ideal Cities

Canada is one of the promising countries that offer great job opportunities, a decent lifestyle and comfortable living spaces. Expatriates and immigrants find it easy to blend into the Canadian culture for two main reasons; welcoming people and equal opportunities for all. When you think of Canada, what comes to mind is the great economic freedom, high-end civilization, and sober governance. Below are the top four ideal cities to live in Canada.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, July 22, 2014: Columbia Icefields, Alberta

GarryRF ·
Great photos Dr Y. Is this an all year tourist resort or would I freeze to death in winter ? I presume this remains sub zero all year due to its elevation. Does it contain any wildlife ? Is it receding with warmer weather ? We see pictures of areas where glacier ice is disappearing but there are areas we don't see where it's on the increase. I remember being taught about shifting ice regions in the 1950's and all this alarmist talk today seems to be just a continuation of normality.

Hi Garry, if you came in the mid of Canadian winter, the glacier ice field will look no difference to rest of the country . So, walk on the glacier ice under the hot summer sun is much more thrill! Yes, during last visit, we were told that the Columbia Ice Field glacier is receding.

The Westjet expansion is most welcome to Canadians. The planes will be opening Gatwick, which I don't think Air Canada flies to. Porter flies just small aircraft, but is very popular in the Toronto area.

Re: Canadian Start-Up ZiNG Airlines Plans on Using Bombardier Jets to Compete

DrFumblefinger ·
I wish them success. Canada could use another airline, especially true if ZiNG plans on running as a discounter. I agree with their sentiment that WestJet has lost its way. I've no problem with what planes are used by either company, but their focus on customer service has dropped greatly in the past decade.

Re: Canadian Start-Up ZiNG Airlines Plans on Using Bombardier Jets to Compete

It's very hard to start an airline today and ZiNG has got a tough road ahead to launch their airline. But they do raise some interesting arguments for using the Bombardier CS100 and not using hub cities. Watch their You Tube Video:

I know what you mean. Maligne Lake is a beautiful area to see and the tour out to Spirit Island is certainly worth it. One of the most notable things about the lake is the colour of the water itself that is due to being glacier fed. Up there this past June and was treated to a young moose feeding along the water near the boat launch and then two young black bears dining along the cutline just off the main road. Chatted with a family from Washington DC and a young German couple. They were...

Really good quality photos DrF. I love looking at frozen landscapes - on a screen ! Your words about reflection jogged my memory. Ever been walking through a store and see someone you think you recognise in the distance ? And as you get closer you realise its a mirror you're walking towards ! My wife says I need glasses - but its OK - I stop before I get into a conversation !
