Statement made on 25 February 2009 by Senator Maria Chaput
Hon. Maria Chaput:
Honourable senators, when you look at the agreement made with Air Canada, could you also look at the way it guarantees French services? If it has an obligation to offer these services in French, can it have help from the federal government? Air Canada representatives told us at an Official Languages Committee hearing that it is considered to be a private business and therefore no longer has access to funding for training personnel or for offering services in both languages. This problem must not be repeated with the other Crown corporations.
