Why is the air passenger bill not in the government's Bill C-49?

Senate December 12, 2017

Senator Terry M. Mercer: "I am concerned about the things that aren't in the bill, because -- especially the things you say that are in the bill -- for example, the passenger bill of rights. It's talked about all the time, and people feel very comfortable about it -- but it's not there. [...] If you're talking about being in it, why isn't it there?"
