CP birds rusting away in YXE and YYC.

The real cost of the AC/CP consolidation can be seen on the runways in several airports where the "excess" CP and AC planes sit and rust to this day. Logos are all painted off, well with one coat of paint but it is a shame to see these planes not being put to work. At YXE there are at least 15 smaller regional styled planes and the same is true in YYC.

The capacity that has been taken out of the AC system is too evident.
