    Norwegian Air Shuttle

    As predicted, YHM-DUB as well as Montreal to some of the French Caribbean will be operated by Norwegian - YHM will be on the 737 MAX and the Montreal routes on the 737-800. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/norwegian-air-to-fly-from-hamilton-to-dublin-next-march-1.4715487
  2. Given the orientation and length of 10/28, will there really be that much of a noise increase on 06/24L/R once 10/28 is closed?

    Getting off topic but I'm well aware of how CANDU's work, and the radiological side of hydrogen, but what I was talking about was on the conventional side of things. To give a high level overview, the heat from the reaction is transferred to heavy water (under high pressure), which is then transferred to light water turning it into steam which spins the turbines and ultimately the generator. Now what most people don't realize is the generator is hydrogen cooled, for many reasons including its heat capacity and density (its lighter than air requiring less energy for it to circulate) and many more. It is used at such a high purity level in a sealed system that ignition is not possible. So yes, on site there are large quantities of gaseous hydrogen stored and being transported. Page 17 of this document is the first one that comes to mind for a good read. https://canteach.candu.org/Content Library/20050712.pdf D2O, yes it is stored but in much lesser quantities.

    You'd be surprised to learn the CANDU generators (OPG and Bruce Power at least) are hydrogen cooled, large quantities of which are stored on site.

    My guess would be YYZ but that said I wouldn't be surprised if they went for Hamilton instead...

    I find it interesting that they're completely separating Swoop from WestJet as opposed to AC/Rouge. Interesting approach and I think it will do well.

    First 2000 bookings were $0, passenger just pays fees and taxes.

    Saw one out yesterday on the 9, not sure which number but they're not dead yet.

    171/172 are scheduled to enter service on Monday. http://www.theobserver.ca/2017/11/17/online-bus-information-system-planned-for-2018

    Not surprising to me considering Frontier recently announced plans to start flying DEN-YYC next spring.

    Unless things change, no they won't. Rouge is maxed out for the amount of planes allowed in their fleet, per their agreements with the unions.

    The livery is slightly different. The back is plain white. The lower skirt panels on the sides of the body are gray and the blue stripe does not extend to the bottom of the bus but rather the top of the side skirts. The destination sign did not appear to be working today.
  13. I have. If I was to hit someone or something my policy covers their damages. Anything above and beyond limits is on me. I would be labelled an at risk driver or denied any subsequent coverage. There's a reason insurance companies don't like dealing with people who have dangerous drivering records (DUI, reckless etc), and that's because they're a high risk where the insurance company is likely to have to pay out, again. As smallspy pointed out, there are other parties involved, namely a pedestrian that was hit, which is where the insurance will be focusing their attention - Not a bus shelter.
  14. It indeed does vary policy to policy and province to province. Seriously, get real, everyone would be doing it? The fines and tenfold insurance increases are already a deterrent, but some people still feel the need to endanger themselves and others. That said, Under the vast majority of policies in Canada, the drunk drivers insurance policy will cover property damage and injuries up to the drivers maximum policies. Obviously insurance companies are out to protect themselves when it comes to settlements, but a DUI does not void an insurance policy that is in effect at the time of a collision, regardless the cause. If you're found guilty of an infraction then you're labelled an at risk driver.
  15. What? Insurance will pay out damages to the other party to the maximum of his policy. That's what insurance is for.
