A report reveals how difficult it was for Air Force personnel to act with VIPs on board on military planes where alcohol was present.


Alcohol is not normally served on military flights but had been authorized by Vance for the Team Canada trips. And it was the “catalyst” for the problems on this trip, according to the air force.

The results of a special investigation ordered by Vance confirm that the problems started even before the military CC-150 Polaris aircraft left Ottawa on Dec. 1 on its first leg to Athens.

Some passengers consumed alcohol waiting for the flight and were allowed to carry their drinks on to the plane while boarding. None of the civilian passengers underwent security screening and at least one unidentified passenger brought his own bottle of rum onboard that was consumed by other passengers. The cabin crew were immediately concerned with the level of intoxication of some passengers. Indeed, two passengers were so intoxicated, they urinated themselves.

And so it begins. Rotating strikes in Victoria (&surrounding islands), Edmonton, Windsor and Halifax. The rest of the country will get mail today. Who knows who will not tomorrow.

Greater Toronto area in Ontario is today's site of Canada Post strikes-one day after municipal elections mostly took place (a couple of municipalities had issues yesterday so voting has been extended into today):

John Tory returns as Toronto's mayor, Fred Eisenberger keeps Hamilton (his third term) and Bonnie Crombie remains mayor of Mississauga, ON.
