Air Canada and great customer service together in one sentence? Did it actually happen? I mean; I am telling you I recently experienced some of THE best customer service from Air Canada; and it was during the Christmas holidays. Have they finally got it together? Has Mr. Rovinescu, President and CEO of AC, brought forth an era of genuinely caring, compassionate, and joyful employees? I mean; it definitely seems AC is flying in the right direction. My family and I flew on AC, albeit Jazz, from Edmonton, Alberta to Houston, Texas during the Christmas holidays. From the check-in and gate agents at Edmonton International Airport, to the smiling faces of the flight attendants, our flight could not have gone any smoother. The return trip was where AC really shone through. Upon check-in at Houston, we were informed our AC flight was delayed by a couple of hours. Our flight was to take us from Houston to Calgary and then on to Edmonton. Air Canada employee) I realized that our connection in Calgary was going to be missed.
I quickly telephoned AC reservations to re-book us on a later flight. I was informed that the two remaining flights from Calgary to Edmonton that evening where full, but, they would re-book us for the next morning flight. Now here's where things can get complicated - with who is paying for an overnight hotel stay due to a misconnect. The aircraft arrived into Houston two hours delayed from scheduled departure. During our wait the gate agent was informative and helpful with any questions passengers asked. When the boarding began the gate agent sincerely expressed her apologizes on behalf of AC for the delay of the aircraft. Upon landing in Calgary, armed with some liquid courage, my family and I are ready to slay the first dragon that denies us a paid hotel night stay. But alas, no need for drawn swords as AC is ready and waiting (with smiles) for the inconvenienced passengers from Houston. Hotel reservations have been arranged, shuttle is outside waiting, and meal vouchers for supper and breakfast are handed out (with smiles).
The hotel was clean and comfortable, the food tasty, and we had a good night's rest. In the morning we were presented with the next challenge, we were informed the shuttle from the hotel to the airport was fully booked. The hotel desk agent informed us that a taxi had been ordered for us and that AC will refund us the taxi charge. AC will refund the taxi charge because the shuttle's full? Once the taxi deposited us at the airport, taxi receipt in hand, my determined partner walks over to the AC ticketing counter, explains our situation and presents the taxi receipt. I mean; money refunded. Being an ex-Canadian Airlines/Air Canada employee caught in the merger, I saw both the inside and outside of an unhappy workforce, passengers and dim lit future. Now, seven years after leaving Air Canada, I have a different 30,000 foot view of the airline.
Pit Bulls taken up by shelters are spayed and neutered, vaccinated for heartworm and given other vaccinations as may be required. Pit Bull rescue shelters operate widely on the Internet. There are various organizations like the Pit Bull Rescue Central, Bay Area Dog-lovers Responsible About Pit Bulls (BADRAP), among many others who have their hearts in the right places when relocating Pit Bulls is concerned. These organizations accept Pit Bulls from people who may wish to abandon their dogs for whatever reason, treat them and then scout for proper homes to relocate them. Most of these organizations screen the applicants of people who wish to adopt Pit Bulls, even visit their homes and cross-check with their veterinarians. However, Pit Bull rescue teams cannot emphasize enough how much better it is to take in a rescued dog than a bred dog. For starters, it is morally better to give a home to a dog that has been rescued from some unfortunate circumstances in the past. Rescue dogs are already spayed or neutered and treated for vaccines. Most of the rescue dogs are already trained under previous owners. And needless to say, rescue dogs look upon their new owners like a messiah and will be totally loyal to them. But there are some strings attached. As most of the dogs picked up by rescue shelters are stray or abandoned, there may not be documentation on them. Rescue homes would not know the lineages and past histories of most of their dogs. However, these are minor things when you consider the bigger picture of giving a homeless dog a home.
Firstly, let's clarify what we mean by a condominium (otherwise referred to as "condo"). Condos can be viewed as fairly similar to apartments; however there are some crucial differences. Typically speaking, a condo is essentially a private space or residence in a larger building or community. It is also possible to have what is commonly referred to as "detached condos" as well, which are not part of a larger building. There is a common trait to all condos; which is that they will share common areas, such as a communal gym, or car park. Upkeep of these communal areas usually incurs a separate cost - for example, the upkeep of the communal gardens. Now, let's consider why people typically buy condos in Edmonton, Alberta. Edmonton is fast becoming one of Canada's most trendy cities. It is known as one of Canada's hottest cities, which means you can rely on beautiful sunshine for a large part of the year. Edmonton is also one of Canada's youngest and thriving cities - it is estimated than one in ten people are students.
