I have a story about my entire trip to Yellowknife and how I had so much positive by getting to visit my sister, brother-in-law and nieces, but then had so many issues with Air Canada that I am going to tell you all about.

On Friday, July 30, I was scheduled to fly from Toronto to Calgary, then onto Yellowknife with a two hour layover. I got on my flight in Toronto to go to Calgary and then suddenly I was told that we had to stop off in Winnipeg due to mechanical issues. Once we arrived in Winnipeg, we were told it would be six hours before flying out to Calgary. This meant my connecting flight was gone. The next Air Canada flight to Yellowknife wasn't until Sunday evening. There were two other flights but they were on Canadian North, flying out on Saturday and I was put on the second one on Saturday afternoon.

The last place I visited prior to the Covid-19 pandemic was Las Vegas and Los Angeles. I took 5 days at the end of February and beginning of March 2020 to get away. This was going to be my first of 4 trips that included a trip to Yellowknife, NWT in April, then Europe in May to various places including London, Cologne, Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, Barcelona, Porto, Lisbon, Algarve and Paris, followed by a trip to Montreal for the F1 Grand Prix in June.

With the pandemic though, I have spent so much time at home and not out anywhere that I desperately needed a trip anywhere, so I chose to visit my sister, brother-in-law and nieces in Yellowknife.

You have the right to remain silent, anything that you say can and will be used against you in my column above. Have you ever noticed that if you put really small text somewhere on a billboard, poster or sign, people tend to read it, like you are doing right now. It's like a car getting in an accident, there's always this morbid need to watch. If an infinite number of monkey's is typing on an infinite number of typewriters, do you hear the tree fall in the forest? I hope you made a New Year's Resolution because if not, you have nothing to look up to or be able to break a few months later. If you don't have a New Year's Resolution, let's go, what's taking you so long? You have the right to enlist the help of a journalist, voodoo doll, psychic, Harry Potter expert, Gandolph the Grey, J.K. Rowling, Ken Dryden, Cindy Robinson, Allister Hain, Brian Williams, Peter Mansbridge, Don Cherry or the Barrie Colts. You are now a part of Ryan's World! Now back to your regularly scheduled life!
