ARCHIVED: Tweet to Senators to amend Bill C-49


  • February 25, 2018: Campaign launched.
  • March 27, 2018: Standing Senate Committee on Transport and Communications amended the bill by
    • limiting to 90 minutes the time you may be trapped on the tarmac, instead of 3 hours; and
    • keeping consumer advocates doing their work, instead of letting the government silence them.
  • March 29, 2018: The Senate sent Bill C-49 back to the House of Commons with the amendments.
  • The Transport Minister has vowed to reject the Senate's amendments to Bill C-49.

The government's Bill C-49 claws back passenger rights:

  • doubling the time you may be trapped in an aircraft on the tarmac from 90 minutes to 3 hours;
  • relieving airlines from compensating you for flight disruptions due to mechanical failures; and
  • letting the airlines and their cronies decide what your rights should be when you travel.

Bill C-49 is now before the Senate. It is our last chance to stop the assault on our rights, and seek real protection from airline misconduct.
