ATAC Appeared Before TRAN Committee to Comment on Bill-C-47

ATAC’S President and CEO, John McKenna, appeared before the Senate Standing Committee on Transport and Communications on Tuesday, June 4, to comment Bill-C-97 which allows the creation of a new Designated Screening Authority for airport security to replace CATSA. ATAC supports the replacement or transformation of CATSA if the new entity is given the necessary tools to maximize efficiencies in the short term and be able to keep pace with the growth of our industry, that travelers not incur an increase in costs, and that all concerned parties take the time required to develop a strong, efficient, autonomous, transparent and well governed model.
