Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Transport and again it is on the $24 security fee.
The transport committee released a report entitled “Building a Transportation Security Culture: Aviation as the Starting Point”, and in it, recommendation 14 states:
All stakeholders including airports, air carriers, airline passengers and/or residents of Canada contribute to the cost of improved aviation security.
This recommendation was supported unanimously at committee, including by the minister's own parliamentary secretary. Why would he ask the transport committee to come up with recommendations if he is going to ignore them, and not only ignore them but knife taxpayers to boot?
