    Beware of US requirements for Canadian pilots wishing to fly a U.S. registered aircraft in the U.S.
    Patrick Gilligan
    COPA has received conflicting reports from members about what steps are required to be able to fly a U.S. registered aircraft in the US based on their Canadian licence.

    A snapping turtle injured by a car in Ontario, Canada, has been airlifted more than 400 kilometers to an animal hospital, and is now on a slow road to recovery. The turtle was hit by the car in Sarnia, Ontario, and needed emergency medical treatment at the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre in Peterborough. Windsor pilot Rick Woodall is a volunteer with Pilots N Paws, a national animal rescue group. Normally, he helps to relocate animals that would otherwise be euthanized — mainly dogs and cats — to new homes.

    The Globe and Mail
    At the Northern Store in Fort Albany First Nation, Ontario, a fly-in community on James Bay, a bag of spinach can cost $7.50 and a bag of apples can reach $13. This lack of affordable fresh fruits and vegetables in the north is not unlike the situation in some low-income neighborhoods in the big cities of southern Canada, as well as the United States. In these food deserts you are more likely to find pop and chips than carrots or lettuce.
