Yeah I heard the terrible news on Wednesday I think it was. Sucks if you ask me.... I don't understand why they all just can't allow them on board. Well the just lost my business then. That's O.K. we're driving to the Rush Concert this weekend anyway so it's all good.

Shoot! There was a link to CTV news http://www.ctv.ca/news where you could vote 'yes, keep dogs on board' or 'no, put them in cargo', but now the poll isn't on this page anymore.

IF any of you go, and find it, please post where it is and maybe we can get enough people voting to keep things as they are. Maybe ?

Derek, enjoy the RUSH concert!! Lucky guys!

Air Canada stinks..plain and simple.. I'm not surprised they are doing this.. anything to generate more $$$.. Remember, this is the company that paid Celine Dion X number of millions to pimp the airline.. lol

I got this from a mailing list.......

"Here is a copy of a part of the CKC bulletin sent to members
concerning the Air Canada ban.



Air Canada announced late Thursday June 20 that they have terminated in cabin pet travel on all domestic flights beginning July 15. This is the worst possible news for the many CKC members who frequently fly their dogs and we urge you to respond today.

We are suggesting to any CKC member or pet owner that if this has an impact upon you and your travel plans with your dog make your position and opinion clear to the Honourable Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Transport, at [email protected].c a as well as copies to Air Canada media team at [email protected].

Air Canada President and CEO Montie Brewer can be reached via fax at (514)422-4945. We have been unable to find email for the Executives and Board of Directors for Air Canada for quick communication but postal information is available on their website at www.a ircanada.com. "

Hey nice resources on this forum...sticking it to the man...Yeah... I honestly have newver flown with A/C but have been to Leaf Games at the Hangar but hey I'm all for a good mob riot at the A/C HQ. I can see something like this being overturned by the Brass at A.C. I can't see them keeping it Law if there's enough outrage at the decision. Still makes life harder for Breeders, Show's, all that stuff.

Ceiline Dion couldn't Pimp herself out to anyone except for the old and weary...

I used to fly Air Canada all the time to Toronto to visit my Mom . After 9-11 Untited canceled their flights ..
I must say I thought the flight crews for the most part were always very good - the airlines another story .
Every time I got on the plane there was always a change and it was never for the better .. It always seemed it was another cost cutting program ..
My brother calls it the peoples airline and I do not think he means it in a postive way ..
Air Canada used to be a very good airlines . Sad to see what has happened over the years .. For an airlines supposedly subsidized by the gov't this is just another disapointment for the taxpayers .
I flew once and there were people who had just been to a dog show in SF and I was so impressed by the way they took care of the dogs ..
In fact the dogs were delivered to the owners way before we got our luggage ..
I am happy to to join the protest ..
