Got legislation? Bring it on. Canadians agree. Seriously, this poll shows support for Bill C-484, alongside airline, cellphone and competition bureau regulation. I’m not saying the support for all four isn’t real. Just too many questions, too much regulation for me, all in one poll.
Personally, I have a dream of air transit deregulation. (That’s an irrelevant aside.)
Brigitte disagrees strongly: Not at all irrelevant. If we deregulated the industry Air Canada would be forced to offer decent services at prices that don’t force you to re-mortgage your house. But then again, I’m of two minds on the issue: I once tried to start a movement in the U.S. to bring a constitutional right to a direct flight. Oh well. I was young and foolish and spent too much time in too many airports running around clutching my carry-on trying to catch incredibly ill-timed connections.
