In a rare move, the team has abruptly cancelled scheduled appearances in six cities in Canada and the United States over the coming weeks.Instead, the team, formally known as 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, are returning to their base in Moose Jaw, Sask., for “additional practice and training” before returning to the airshow circuit sometime in June.The military said Tuesday that no one was available to speak about the decision. But in a Facebook posting, the team said that despite several “well-executed” shows so far, more training was needed.

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds show in Edmonton is expected to go on as scheduled, despite a temporary grounding of the air show flight demonstration team for the remainder of the month.

“At this time, we have no reason to believe they won’t be performing,” said Dean Heuman, executive producer for the Edmonton Airshow, who has spoken with representatives of the Snowbirds.

The airshow recently announced Canada’s premier aeronautics team will make its first full performance over the city in 15 years. That was cast into doubt Monday evening when the Snowbirds team announced in a Facebook post it is cancelling its next six shows to fit in more practice.

Edmonton police arrest man dubbed by victims as the "hangover bandit"

  Edmonton police arrest man dubbed by victims as the Edmonton police have arrested a man in connection with a string of robberies who has been dubbed the “hangover bandit” by witnesses who described a strong smell of alcohol on his breath. Justin James Taylor, 27, of Beaumont, is facing multiple charges in connection with 14 incidents dating back to December 2016. He was arrested by officers who responded to a robbery call near a convenience store at 60 Street and Mill Woods Road, at approximately 7 a.m. on May 14. “This involved some excellent police work from the division,” EPS A/Det. Nancy Ho said in a release. “This individual traumatized a lot of people, forcing some to even quit their jobs out of fear, so we’re pleased to have him charged and before the courts.” He received his nickname after several witnesses described the suspect as having “a strong smell of alcohol on his breath,” according to the release. Taylor faces 20 counts of robbery, 14 counts of wearing a disguise with intent, 13 counts of possession of weapon for a dangerous purpose, and uttering threats.

“I honestly have heard it’s a very different, very new, very stunning routine,” said Heuman. “We’re looking forward to showing off them and the SkyHawks.”

The SkyHawks is a Canadian Forces parachute demonstration team also scheduled to perform at the Edmonton Airshow, set for Aug. 19-20 at the Villeneuve Airport, west of Edmonton.

Most of the cancelled shows were scheduled for American cities, but the squadron also had shows scheduled in Windsor and Fort Erie, Ont., which were scratched. Windsor has cancelled its entire airshow as a result.

“A reduced training period hampered by poor weather, which continued into the show season, resulted in numerous cancelled practices,” wrote Snowbirds team lead Maj. Patrick Gobeil in the Facebook post. “As a result, more training is required before the Snowbirds resume the 2017 schedule.”

Evan Koronewski, a spokesperson for the Department of National Defence, said that he has no reason to believe the Edmonton show will be affected.

The team is also still scheduled to perform over Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Canada Day.

The Snowbirds are based in Moose Jaw, Sask.
