A Female WestJet Pilot received a Sexist Note from a male passenger on one of her Flights from Calgary to Victoria on Sunday.
Captain Carey Steacy, who has more than 15000 Hrs [ 17 Years] of Flight Experience, Posted a photo of the note on Facebook.
Identified only as @David, the note to Steacy reads:
To Capt / West Jet
This Cockpit of Airline is no place for a Woman. A Woman being a Mother is the most Honor. Not as ‘Captain’. Were [sic] short mothers not Pilots WestJet.”
The note also references Proverbs 31.
“P.S. I wish WestJet could tell me a fair lady is at the helm so I could book another Flight!”
When Steacy posted the note to Facebook She Wrote: 
Thank you for the note you discreetly left me on your seat. You made sure to ask the Flight Attendants before we left if I had enough hours to be the Captain so safety is important to you, too.”
You were more than Welcome to deplane when you heard I was a Fair Lady.  You have that right. Funny, 
We all, us humans, have the same rights…
