Transport committee  We think that the costs have become the highest. We were in second place before the 50%, 52% or 53% increase, depending on the costs—there are three different ones. We have the same questions as you do: is the CATSA well managed, in an effective and efficient manner? We see that

Transport committee  None of the pilots or terrorists involved was a commercial pilot. These were people who had taken an elementary piloting course and took over the cabin. They did not have proper training and they were not employees of airline companies.

Finance committee  Well, sir, that is part of the problem. We haven't had an Auditor General's report on this subject since 2004-05, so we can only go...and we can't have access to those numbers. We have asked for them many times, from various sources, and we can't have access to them. We can only

Finance committee  It doesn't quite add up, sir. Of course, they bought 44 scanners and they need more personnel to operate them, but scanners cost $250,000 apiece. I don't think that quite mounts up to $300 million.
