Unfair airline funding

I read with interest the article explaining why discount airlines in Canada seem to have a difficult time making a go of it.

The writer forgot one important reason—Air Canada gets federal funding.

A gift, asset, investment, large employer emergency financing, call it what you will, but if all the smaller “upstart” airlines had the federal government “in their back pockets,” perhaps those smaller airlines might stand a chance.
