Canada passes bill forcing carriers to provide passenger information to US

4-Mar-2011 12:48 PM

Canada’s House of Commons announced it has passed a bill that would force carriers to provide the US with passenger information for those travelling to US destinations (Postmedia News, 03-Mar-2011). The bill reportedly passed by a vote 246 to 34. It now moves to the Senate for consideration. The legislation is designed to amend Canada’s Aeronautics Act and gives the US the final say on who gets to travel on Canadian services that pass over its airspace.
