    Reporting Welfare Fraud

    Problem is the relatives wittingly or unwittingly aided the fraud (although in a fairly passive way) so they may not be entirely innocent. They may end up as collateral damage though depending on how aggressive it was prosecuted I suppose. An old person with arthritis and a host of medical...

    Reporting Welfare Fraud

    Three out of four Tribers agree! Before the thread gets snitchy I should clarify that no identifying information has been disclosed to authorities, only the abstract of the fraud.

    Reporting Welfare Fraud

    What, no "OMG it's SNOWING HOW WILL WE EVER SURVIVE" thread?

    Porter Airlines says Toronto/New York flights this April

    The tolerances are set by the designer and contracted to the machine shop. If the machine shop screws up and does shoddy work how in the manufacturer to blame? The Q400 is a decent puddle jumper. Having flown a fair bit on Porter I can say three things stand out: 1. Landing at Island saves...
