Your thread title is longer than your post!

I know about it, but maybe others don't. Supply some content or a link or something! :neutral:

I tried to sign the petition. I'm not sure I succeeded. It kept trying to get me to share on Facebook and sign other petitions so I just closed the window.

It requires you to look at (but not necessarily sign) ten other petitions before it will process the first one. You can skip right through them all, clickety-click...

Thanks for that info, Maoman; I probably would have closed the page in irritation, without knowing that. SIGNED!

If Air Canada is still paying for Canada Day, how about a protest on the day?

Air Canada may have acted in a morally cowardly way, but they're not daft. They know all too well that if they flash logos at this year's Canada Day party, there'll be nasty local consequences for them. If they hide their logo, then there's no need to cause a scene. That's my :twocents:

I stopped flying Air Canada decades ago. The stewardesses seem like they are 90 years old, smell like arthritic cream, and have attitude. :lol:

What the hell is Air Canada's logo doing there? They just betrayed Taiwan by changing their online designation from "Taipei, Taiwan" to "Taipei, China". There is no way they should be showing their logo at this event. There will be protests, boycotts, and blowback for both the CanCham and Celebration Canada. The spirit of the Canadian Society seems to be dead. Welcome to the corporate world, peasants.

I just googled: Cheapest flights Taipei to Toronto

Air Canada came up. You're right - it will already have been forgotten.
