It was suggested that the airline launched the ‘You and I’ campaign featuring Celine Dion on the same day it laid off 185 employees. A similar notion is carried in the caption. This is entirely and utterly false. No such lay-offs took place on this day, or in the days to follow for that matter.

On another note, it was advised the airline should open up seats on every flight for children with cancer. This past year, Air Canada offered in partnership with 13 children’s hospitals, a transportation program for sick children. Since October 1, 2003, we have transported, for free, more than 300 children plus their companion to hospitals where they can receive the best treatment.

As well, Dreams Take Flight, a non-profit volunteer organization supported by fundraising and corporate sponsors, organizes trips to Disneyland or Disney World for physically, mentally or socially challenged children.
