Canadians pay more for airfare than most other people in the world. While other countries allow entrepreneurs and established airlines the freedom to introduce innovative low-cost options for travellers, Canadians are required to settle for what government thinks we should get. It’s long past time for Canada to catch up with the rest of the world.
That’s why as Prime Minister, I will ensure Canadians have access to cheaper airfare by:
- Removing foreign ownership restrictions on airlines;
- Lowering airport taxes
