Transport committee  I think you're on the wrong track. I said that one of the models considered would allow airports to have different prices.

Finance committee  Well, I think they're going to take it province by province. We asked that very question, and we did not get an answer to that.

Finance committee  Also, if I may add, the service levels, the level of sensitivity, are not determined by CATSA. It gets its marching orders from the government, from Transport Canada, and it has to apply them. We go to other countries where, of course, how long they look at each piece of luggage
