I had another look, and yes, he is wearing Qantas pilot wings complete with company logo accompanying the lanyard. I'm surprised the lawyers haven't told him to knock it off, people at companies I've worked at have gotten severely talked to for wearing uniform items to things like fancy dress parties when the photos turn up on social media.

Is he still a pilot?

The numbers were pretty big in Canberra, takes a lot to facilitate that size of event, for what seems about a week now. Truckers in Ottawa (massive numbers) certainly have out played the police force there & had zero concern when GoFundMe pulled the $9M donations.

I would have money on Mr Hood getting a seat at the table with the PM for discussions this week, I doubt any other here on PPRuNe will get an invite.
you’ll lose your money. He is a first class jerk. A disgrace to the profession.

I too will take that bet please - put me down for $50 (or any value higher that you’re willing to stake).

Let’s go back to the start, this bloke is an A pilot so jumped in just after the dispute, got a great gig at the expense of others, I’m not going to mention the S word because it’s been too long. As someone who has flown with this guy for approx 100 hours in the past, can I just assure everyone he was a great Captain to fly with, there was no intonation or stuff he talked about outside of work with all the religious stuff. He just seems to have become unhinged the last couple of years ago with COVID, but that’s normal, some people just find it hard to change with seismic changes in life, especially if everything hinges around the ghost in the sky, I’ve found the more religious types have been the hardest hit these last 2 years as they rely on a fairy for guidance rather than their own will, just my take on it. You need to believe in yourself, not some imaginary clown.

I'll take that bet. $50 says he doesn't sit down with the PM this week? Especially after the rigmarole of his singing efforts and his "bringing the power of jesus casting out the demons" on the twitter posts.

Edit - Having just spent ten minutes listening to one of his speeches, filled with references to the Anzacs and bringing Jesus back into schools and Lest We Forget and spoken prayer, "more than a bit weird" looks to be completely on brand for him. Would've been a long trip with him on your roster....
Try this one.

P.S this is how Canada is going. Personal Security for Justin Trudeau quits and gives reasons.

Seems you need to research that link censored.

He seems to attract the religious. I have one very religious friend at work.. who has slowly but completely gone off the rails ( no pun intended) in the last 2 years. Seeing conspiracies everywhere, to the point now he is no longer able to work.

i have a good old ex-friend who went down that rabbit hole and appears, from my perspective, to have lost his rational mind.

I think the suspension of disbelief required of the faithful (of any stripe) eventually ends in them abandoning their critical thinking skills because they are inconsistent with the comfort they find in their god.

Religious people are targeted by politicians like Trump and Morrison because they are a proven particularly gullible subset of the population and can be fleeced out of money in exchange for a few hollow promises.

Why do so many people keep laying into Satan? Leave him alone. Many a good rock band or film actor have sold their souls to the devil and then received major wealth and fame in return. Surely old Lucifer ain’t all that bad?

Most the crowd (at Canberra) do not seem to fit the religious profile ALL 500 of them.

Very glad of your comment - I expected to get attacked for mine on this forum.

I think you’re overstating the impact of these groups now. The battle over the Covid vaccination has already been fought and conclusively lost by the anti-vaxxers.

96% of Australians 16+ have had at least one dose of a vaccine. 85% of Canadian truck drivers have too.

Mandates aren’t going to be dropped. No policies will be changed. In time this movement will fizzle out, just like their predecessors in the anti migrant protests a few years back fizzled out, and then those involved will either fade into nothingness, wise up and quietly get the jab, or continue to hold out and then suffer the consequences of contracting the virus whilst being unvaccinated.

But as the vast majority are now vaxxed they’ll continue to get on with their lives as normal and give little thought to the tiny fraction who won’t.

They are not just anti-vaxxers. They are a grab bag of conspiracy theorists, "sovereign citizens" and those who express a faith that has very little to do with what I would call mainstream Christianity. Every society has the people on the fringes. The 2 years (so far) of Covid has given all the dispirit groups a common focus so they are gathering to protest against whatever their particular issue is. I have met many pilots who can be described as nutters and they were definitely in the anti-religion camp. The author C.S. Lewis wrote a book about Satan, "The Screwtape Letters", some of you might find it interesting.

Blond- "Are you a good pilot?"

Graham- "I can hold my own."

Blond-" Good- so I won't have to worry about you making a living as a singer..."

Quoting Jim Jefferies- "God and Satan don't get along, but only God wrote a book about it. As far as i'm concerned, Satan is just being the bigger man..."
