A recent poll demonstrates that 53 per cent of Canadians are against privatizing our largest airports. After raising it in the fall, Finance Minister Bill Morneau has yet to rule out selling public airport lands and assets.  “This idea to sell our airports is part of a disturbing trend,” said Robyn Benson, President of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), “Trying to make a quick buck of one of our most valuable assets means we will be paying more down the road. The Minister needs to take this off the table, now”.
