Flying..... High

Dr. David Salisbury, Ottawa's Chief Medical Officer of Health and vocal proponent of the free crack-pipe program in that city, has been appointed to Transport Canada as the Director of Civil Aviation Medicine, reports the Ottawa Citizen. Dr. Salisbury has graced the pages of TDPC before.
Dr. Salisbury, who is 53, said his new job will involve setting and maintaining standards for the medical fitness of pilots, flight engineers and air controllers for civil aviation, and ensuring that high standards are met internationally.
There is as yet no word on when Canadian air carriers will be forced to begin carrying crack pipes and exchange needles on domestic flights.
