I'm sure granny wants to abolish the musical ride and the RCMP themselves because they are colonial institutions.

Or, we could reform them and not celebrate their racist bullshit.

Guess what - this isn't a necessary military activity.

People compete to be on this team, they arenít stupid and they know the risks. In fact, the reason they are selected is because they arenít stupid, they are highly disciplined and because of their ability to perform under pressure. This is at the top of their profession and why they want to do it. Donít feel sorry for them, they are exactly where they want to be.

Reform is good when needed.  RCMP shouldn't be doing arsehole stuff.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

I wonder what the accident rate is for geese in formation.  Seriously.  Advantage is they can probably clip wings and not die.

Off-topic:  i think calling the plural or goose and deer as gooses and deers is fun.

Why would I feel sorry for dead people? They have families.

Don't you think that should be between them and their families?

Honestly? No

Why should anyone need your permission to accept a risk?

If someone wants to risk death, I don't care.  You just have to make sure they don't hurt bystanders on the ground if they crash.

This was a ferry flight, it could have been any aircraft.

Airshows in Canada with no participation from Canadian forces sounds like a great idea.  ::)

I never said that at all.  Air shows donít need high risk maneuvers to be interesting.

Risk is a relative term but if you just want to see aircraft flying by, go to an airport.
