Why couldn't he sit still?

What a weasel.

A weasel that makes 19 million a year and complains about other's salaries.

I know it's a Canadian company, but even they understand "supply and demand", right?

Another useful tagline he should consider: "you get what you pay for"

So in the same breath where he says they had profit of $250 million, his argument is that pilots need to take a pay cut? Unreal.
