Snowbird crash

A Snowbirds flight has ended in a crash and possibly a fatality.

I’m just going to come out and say it — as much as we love and honour the Snowbirds as a Canadian icon, the tour always seemed to me to be a distraction from the incompetence of this government; a self-serving exercise in feel-good Liberal branding as they spend us into bankrutpcy. Today’s crash stands as a terrible metaphor, a smoldering exclamation point on the shit show that is Justin Trudeau. What a damned waste.

As an aside the "Canadian icon" always seemed too perfect a Canadian metaphor. The iconic American Blue Angels team is always upgrading their jets while the Snowbirds -- formed thirty years later as an imitation of their American elders -- are flying aircraft that debuted the same year as Doctor Who and The Littlest Hobo.
