Are the people protesting the potential closure of Goose the same ones who argued so vehemently against the low level training? Goose is a superb place to conduct advanced training. With a little creative marketing and pricing incentives it could have become one of the premiere aeronautical training facilities but when the local people didn't want any part of it, the customers went elsewhere. Without the training, it is a white elephant and should be closed. There are places that we have already shut down (Summerside comes to mind) that were far more strategically located and offered much greater opportunities for spousal satisfaction to waste a tear on the folks in Goose neighbourhood who fought so hard to ensure that the training went elsewhere.
