‘Chaos’ at Toronto’s Pearson airport could continue until end of August, ex-Air Canada exec says

CBC News: Extremely long wait times being experienced by arriving and departing passengers at Toronto Pearson Airport are likely to continue until Labour Day, a former Air Canada executive said Wednesday.

“Chaos, messy, impossible, difficult,” were the words used by Duncan Dee to describe the situation at Canada’s busiest airport. 

“It’s not where you want to be,” Dee told CBC Radio’s Metro Morning.

Over the last two months, travellers at Pearson have faced long lineups, delays and cancellations, which some blame on continuing COVID-19 restrictions and a labour shortage.

Dee says while Canada’s Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra has promised 400 new screening officers starting at the end of June, he doubts that that’s going to make a huge difference.
