...and this was from just the first page of search results on Castanet. Interesting how many times Bruce Hedmann is quoted in their stories...

What gets me about those is a complete lack of understanding in how airports work. Really? A city councilor thought they knew better than Kelowna’s air traffic controllers? Blows my mind.
