Fan mail to Sara Mojtehedzadeh, June 8, 2015:

Hector Silva steered me to your terrific article in the Sun June 11 about the plight of refuelers at Pearson Airport.

I’m an old print journalist based in California. My wife and I were among the people delayed in Toronto on June 3.  I wrote about the experience on and for a small weekly called The Anderson Valley Advertiser. My account was superficial and based on inferences —yours provided the all-important context and the relevant facts.  I wish I’d seen it before I weighed in.
