Miracle at Pearson
Wow, the news of the plane crash at Toronto's airport sure took me (and I'm sure many others) by surprise today.

From what I understand, the pilots need to be commended for making a bad situation into a survivable one. One of the people I deal with through work is an air traffic controller at Vancouver International and he seemed to be amazed that there weren't more injuries. 'Those pilots, man...that's what saved 'em'

A couple good blog posts here and here.

What annoyed me though is how quick the local news was to point out that there were stranded passengers at our airport who felt they were getting the short shift because Toronto was closed. Where does compassion go and instead of inconvenience, why aren't more people just thankful that there was no loss of life?

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
