{File By EX} - Up Up and Away

"One thing that Marlena did was answer questions sent to the department by the Minister. Her answers usually took the form of a briefing note (BN in System-speak)." In this week's installment of File By EX, Marlena finds out just how 'nutty' some of the requests can be. All flies south when the Minister asks "for a briefing note on the new Air Canada instructions from the Canadian Transportation Agency that said the airline had to create a nut-free zone in each of its airplanes. The Minister wanted to know if that meant he could ban Elizabeth May from flying." I chose an outside view of an airplane; Marlena delivers her memo to the Minister in the form of a paper airplane which soars over a snoozing Elizabeth May in the center, which might have some questioning her position in the center and the likelihood that she would travel on a plane in light of her Green choice policies, but hey, it's all about choices.
