This week’s whirlwind Royal visit by Prince Charles and his wife Camilla focussed on reconciliation with Indigenous people. But for many Canadians it raised the question of whether it’s time to cut ties with the monarchy. Recent polls show a slim majority think that should happen when Charles becomes king. Libby talked with David Onley who served as the Queen’s representative, the Lieutenant Governor, from 2007 to 2014.
Huge lineups at security and customs. Passengers held on the tarmac for hours because there is literally no room for them in the airport. The government, the airlines, and the airports are all blaming each other. Even transport minister Omar Al’Ghabra is pointing the finger at inexperienced passengers.
Al-Ghabra denied that the government asked airlines to cancel flights to ease the backlog. That is where Libby started her conversation with Duncan Dee former COO of Air Canada.
