Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk: In issue # 75 under Snowbird Alert, you wrote that spending a week or two at home for the holidays would not be subtracted from the total days allowed. My question is – if I return home for four to six weeks, can I subtract this time from the “six months less […]

Political Advertisements

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I was very surprised to see an ad for the Ontario PC Party on the back page of the Fall issue of CSANews. I don’t believe it is in the best interests of the Association to accept advertisements from any political party anywhere in Canada. An ad like this appears to give […]

Thank you Medipac!

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, This past winter, I had the misfortune of contracting GBS (Guillain-Barre syndrome). I, like many others, had never heard of this debilitating autoimmune disorder. If you want a scary read, Google it on the Internet. With the accompanying pain and lack of sleep due to the pain, I ended up in the […]
