Get pets off planes: Doctors’ orders.

The Canadian Medical Association, at its annual meeting in St. John’s, called on all commercial airlines to ban animals from cabins because their presence poses too great a risk to people with asthma and allergies. The only exception, the CMA said, should be service dogs that assist people who are visually impaired or have autism.

Can. Tranportation Agency dragging its heels on decision on cats on planes, which they've already ruled a disability. AL will be asking about this, in light of the 2nd year running that the doctors' have requested that pets stay in cargo.

Discussion on this topic on CBC Radio's Ontario Today.

Dr. Kovesci and Dr. Stark featured guests; callers were largely supportive - yay.

We've got a big story on the topic in Winter's Allergic Living.

No real resolution yet, but the Cdn. Lung Assoc continues to press forward with this lobby.
The doctors' support is certainly a big boost, but the pet lobby is very strong.
