Transport Agency Weighs Pets On Plane Issue

During special parliamentary hearings into the pet policies of Canada’s main airlines, a senior representative of the Canadian Transportation Agency said the agency will soon decide [see the ruling here] whether allowing small dogs and cats to travel presents an obstacle to travel for those with severe allergies.
The CTA is currently gathering evidence from four passengers who’ve lodged formal complaints, Air Canada and WestJet, as well as allergy experts. The agency is to rule whether severe allergies and asthma represent a “disability” in this context. For more on this, see the Winter 2010 issue of Allergic Living.
