I understand that Robert Milton is "interviewed" by the Princess Warrior tonight on this hour has 22 minutes. CBC @ 8:00 pm.

I have just cheakced CBC's schedule, it seems to me that they're repeating it everyday at noon. Is it true, or it depends on the region?

Hey. What channel would it be on in Marinette, Wisconsin?

I'd be grateful if someone would tape it for me. Thanks.

I found it too bad that Mary Walsh never gave Milton a chance to say anything... Sort of defeated the point of being in his office with him...

I truly think that Milton is a reasonable guy... perhaps even nice, but he's only ever heard talking in a very business related environment. I think that in this environment he could have had a chance to show himself as a human being.

Don't get me wrong... I don't usually agree with his airline policies, but I think that he may just be a cool guy. Could be wrong.

She was hillarious as always..I couldn't stop laughing!

Milton look liked a scared little boy. He certainly lacks personality - unusual for an airline CEO from the States.

Give me some Texans with attitude, like Bob Crandall, Herb Kelleher, Gordon Bethune, Lamar Durrett, and Hollis Harris!

[added Lamar Durrett, thanks Fisch ]

Now now FlyerAl... we can't have the whole world ruled by iron fist texans

(BTW: You forgot Lamar Durret from your list)

We are blessed with many odd Albertans...

(and some incredibly peculiar British Columbians.)

Segment was very funny, but I wonder why there was no reaction from Milton. Was it scripted that way or is he unable to perform in an unscripted environment.

Certainly other victims have had more fun with it than Milton.

Why can't we find a Canadian to run Canada's national airline?

I seem to recollect that Robert Milton is either a landed immigrant or is now a
Canadian citizen.

RM is a Canadian Citizen, there was lots of article about him when AC first brought CP. He talked about how proud he is to be a Canadian..
