At this point I have no trust in RCAF aircraft from the mechanical sense, not issues from pilots passing out because of exposure to COVID. Great vaccines btw, they don't prevent infection, don't prevent symptoms and don't prevent transmission. Trust the science.

So? If you are sick enough to stay home with some sniffles, does it matter if it's covid or not? People who think masks are a solution for anyone but healthcare professionals should stay away from me if they are sick or not, regardless of how many layers of fabric is on their face. Don't test...
CAF mask policy: “maybe it doesn't help, but it doesn't hurt!"
It’s largely not enforced with no consequences. About 50% compliance with the odd “we still need to wear masks” email from the chief or CO. No one cares.
You chose to live off base. You get paid to sit at home and “work”, our medical system, in my opinion, is a joke allowing people to stay home, with full pay, because people are triggered seeing military bases. Any other employer would just fire you, be grateful.
Good luck in the real world...
They will also be 50 years old by the time you find and train enough pilots, extra crews and set up a show routine. This is all assuming they won’t keep them around for a while until the F-35s take over. Plus we don’t need a poverty version of the US Navy blue angels.
If I was a betting man, which I’m not, I’d figure any snowbird replacements would come with replacements for the Hawks. Buy an extra 15-20 of X aircraft and push them down the line in MJ. Assuming Trudeau even wants these airshow Cadillacs.
In the words of another Liberal: “Zero Elicopter”.
