Details

WHEREAS Air Canada implemented a flight pass program that allowed affordable, flexible travel within the four western Provinces of Canada which was revised in the fall of 2009 that resulted in the price per pass doubling and limited travel designations to two Provinces;

AND WHEREAS northern communities have limited choices for airline carriers and this exorbitant increase creates an additional financial burden on northern residents who need to travel to other northern communities for business or pleasure:

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the NCLGA be requested to petition the Union of British Columbia Municipalities and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to request Air Canada to review the new flight pass program structure implemented in the fall of 2009.
