Air Canada, Attribution de temps, Deuxième lecture

Madam Speaker, our government is still flying VFR in these sunny ways, I am happy to note.

Can the minister confirm that the changes proposed in the bill would indeed increase Air Canada's ability to compete in the international aviation industry on a more even playing field, would modernize the act to remove obsolete references to things like the defunct Montreal Urban Community, and would benefit the provinces of Manitoba, Ontario, and my home province of Quebec by loosening the restrictions on where within those provinces maintenance work must take place?

Madame la Présidente, je suis heureux de souligner que le gouvernement utilise encore le vol à vue dans ces voies ensoleillées.

Le ministre peut-il confirmer que les modifications proposées dans le projet de loi accroîtraient la capacité d'Air Canada de soutenir la concurrence dans l'industrie internationale de l'aviation grâce à des règles du jeu plus équitables, que ces modifications permettraient de moderniser la loi en supprimant des références obsolètes, comme celle à la défunte Communauté urbaine de Montréal, et qu'elles avantageraient le Manitoba, l'Ontario et ma province, le Québec, en assouplissant les restrictions liées aux endroits, dans ces provinces, où doivent être effectuées les activités d'entretien?
