Holiday Travel Chaos Prompts Calls For Improvements

The federal Conservatives are on the offensive as the full recovery from a chaotic few days of holiday travel is slowly coming together.

Shadow Minister for Transportation Mark Strahl stresses thousands of Canadians have been left stranded in the cold, sitting in planes for 12 hours or on trains for 18 hours and have been forced to sleep on the cold, hard floors in overcrowded airports, train stations, and waiting areas.

Strahl says while thousands of us missed or will miss seeing their family members for the first time in years, Justin Trudeau simply jumped on a private jet and went to Jamaica to relax in the sun.

He notes perhaps if the prime minister knew what it was like to wait five days in the airport and get stuck on a crowded plane for hours on the tarmac, Canadians wouldn’t be experiencing this all over again.

Strahl adds the government promised but has done nothing to fix what he calls a broken transportation system.
