Peter Welch said, “Porter Airlines, Ski Vermont, Governor Shumlin, the Burlington International Airport and Customs and Border Protection came together to introduce the people of Toronto to the best skiing and riding in the U.S.A.  This announcement underscores the ‘international’ in Burlington International Airport, creating seasonal scheduled nonstop service between Toronto and Burlington.  While it will offer a much-needed influx of visitors to the state this winter, especially needed following the devastating blow of Hurricane Irene, it will also give Vermonters an unprecedented opportunity to visit and do business in Toronto.” Senator Leahy, Senator Sanders and Congressman Welch wrote to Porter Airlines this summer inviting them to begin service between Toronto and Burlington.  This fall, the lawmakers have worked with the airport and other stakeholders to help iron out details surrounding clearing international visitors at the airport.  “Our new service to Vermont is a perfect complement to our current winter schedule already featuring prime destinations such as Mont Tremblant and Quebec City,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Burlington offers access to an incredible array of spectacular ski hills, and a vibrant community to explore.”The Burlington schedule includes weekly roundtrips on Thursdays and Sundays, with the exception of long weekends which offer Thursday and Monday roundtrip options.

LEADING OFF: Cardinals come home, Grichuk seeks to stay hot

first_img Written By WATCH US LIVE First Published: 20th August, 2020 08:09 IST A look at what’s happening around the majors on Thursday:WELCOME BACK TO BUSCHThe St. Louis Cardinals are finally coming home.After finishing an eight-game, five-day trip to Chicago with series against the White Sox and Cubs, the Cardinals are set to play at Busch Stadium for the first time since July 26 as they host the Cincinnati Reds.The Cardinals didn’t play any games at all for a stretch of over two weeks due to a coronavirus outbreak within the organization that included star catcher Yadier Molina.“Everyone’s still pretty excited about the fact we’re back out,” Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong said. “The quarantine kind of made everybody go crazy a little bit. To finally be back out here doing what we love to do, it’s still fun right now. We’re just going out, playing the game and having fun.”They returned to action by going 4-4 in this eight-game trip that included three doubleheaders. They have 10 scheduled doubleheaders this year as they try to make up some of those games they missedAILING ALVAREZThe season is already over for Houston’s Yordan Alvarez, the unanimous choice as 2019 AL rookie of the year.Astros manager Dusty Baker says Alvarez has a partially torn right patellar tendon that will require season-ending surgery.After hitting 27 homers last year, Alvarez played just two games this season.Alvarez missed the first three weeks of the season due to the coronavirus. He homered against the Seattle Mariners in his season debut Friday but went on the injured list just three days later.A BIEBER FANCleveland’s Shane Bieber owns a 4-0 record and 1.30 ERA, but it’s his strikeout numbers that have put him in select company. Bieber will attempt to continue his hot streak as he faces the Pittsburgh Pirates.The 25-year-old Bieber has struck out 54 through his first five starts of the season. That’s the highest strikeout total by any player in his first five starts of the season since Pedro Martinez also had 54 in 2001.In Bieber’s only previous start against the Pirates, he gave up a career-high seven earned runs in just 1 2/3 innings, which matches the shortest start of his MLB career. Of course, that happened way back on July 24, 2018.GRICHUK’S HOMER STREAKToronto’s Randal Grichuk has homered in four consecutive games and will try to keep that streak going when the Blue Jays play a doubleheader with the Philadelphia Phillies.Grichuk homered twice in a 5-2 victory over Baltimore on Wednesday. This is the second time in Grichuk’s career that he’s homered in four straight games, as he also did it in July 2017.He has six homers this season, all in his last six games.His 11 RBIs in the series against Baltimore that just concluded represented the second-highest total by a Blue Jay in any three-game series. Josh Phelps knocked home 13 runs in a three-game series with Seattle in 2004.Image credits: AP SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News center_img LIVE TV Last Updated: 20th August, 2020 08:09 IST LEADING OFF: Cardinals Come Home, Grichuk Seeks To Stay Hot After finishing an eight-game, five-day trip to Chicago with series against the White Sox and Cubs, the Cardinals are set to play at Busch Stadium for the first time since July 26 as they host the Cincinnati Reds COMMENT FOLLOW USlast_img read more
