Don’t Transfer Airport Ownership Without Compensating Canadians: Response to the Senate recommendation on airport rents

Commentary, Transportation, Mary-Jane Bennett

The Senate recently recommended that airport rents be phased out and ownership of Canada’s public airports be transferred to the non-profit corporations that now run them. Frontier’s Mary-Jane Bennett asserts that this is wrongheaded. Airports are publically owned and worth billions of dollars. They should not be transferred without fairly compensating Canadians.
