Since October 1995, Vesta Stevenson and Terry Baker have been issuing an email newsletter for the retired Air Canada employees who have provided us with their email addresses. The Newsletter was created by Vesta, who gave us the name 'NetLetter' and added 'Between Ourselves' - a TCA periodical with which you are probably familiar with from the 40's, 50's and 60's which is now part of the content of this web site. The name was then changed to "Between Yourselves" to avoid confusion when "Horizons" resurrected the name. Then we finally simplified it to just "The NetLetter".

Vesta passed away on July 25, 2010 and a Special Issue was dedicated to her. We believe that our NetLetter, which originates from Vancouver Island, was the FIRST to use this medium to disperse information for retirees of Air Canada.

The NetLetter contains airline related information such as anecdotes or stories, provided by some of our readers, Internet tips, travel news, cheap... excuse me, "inexpensive" accommodations, tours, interline travel, and, in some small way, we attempt to help keep our Air Canada family together and in touch.

Our 'NetLetter' is not affiliated or operated by the Pionairs or Air Canada, although many people believe that this is the case. It is operated as part of the ACFamily Network, a web site for Air Canada employees and retirees. Since expanding to include a first class email list and a web site, and the expenses associated with this, any donations would be greatly appreciated. If you'd like to make a donation, please see the area in the right hand lower column. If you'd like to subscribe, please use the subscription link at the top of the page. Please tell other retirees as well, all are welcome. We're one big happy family here and it doesn't matter if you worked with TCA, PWA, CPAir, Wardair, etc.

Your NetLetter Team,

Terry Baker, Alan Rust, & Wayne Albertson

Hello, Wonderful seeing 637 as I spend a few hours crawling around her during the wing spare mod late 50's early 60's. It was a wonderful time and I cherish the memories. Enjoy reading the net letter, thank you. The years in CYWG were great...

Hello, Wonderful seeing 637 as I spend a few hours crawling around her during the wing spare mod late 50's early 60's. It was a wonderful time and I cherish the memories. Enjoy reading the net letter, thank you. The years in CYWG were great and then came transfees to Montreal, not so great and left 6 months after arriving. I was a 2nd generation employee and it hurt to leave, but all worked out in the end. I worked 8 yrs with AC and after transferring to Montreal we went to register our children for school. The authorities told us because we came from out of provoke our children would have to go to a french, catholic school. We were english speaking protestants. Not wanting to quit AC, it became necessary and took job with CPAir which turned out equally as good, but lost my seniority with AC. Now an AC retiree I have 22yrs 8 months seniority but actually worked there 8 yrs with 30yrs 8 months with both airlines. The Viscount was the first and I had a wonderful career. Have a Merry Christmas and a great New Year.
Best regards
John Wendell Crerar
