Canada-Israel Air Transport Agreement
Mr. Anthony Housefather (Mount Royal, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, on January 24, the Minister of Transport was in Israel to finalize the expansion of the Canada–Israel air transport agreement. Many constituents in my riding have greatly benefited by the free travel back and forth between the two countries, in particular the new Montreal–Tel Aviv route introduced last year.
What were the outcomes of the minister’s discussions? Could we see more flights between Canada and Israel?
Hon. Marc Garneau (Minister of Transport, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, for this government, offering more choice at lower cost with better service is one of our priorities. That is why I was particularly glad to announce the expansion of the air transport agreement between Israel and Canada. We are adding up to seven more flights on a weekly basis. This is not only good for moving people and goods; it is good for business and it is good for our strong relationship between Canada and Israel.
No business to report.
