Not to be the stodgy Canadian but Pierson International Airport in Toronto
is a rather large Airport with 3 terminals now, and another scheduled to be
completed in the next two years.  We may have a limited number of airlines
(it's worse than Microsoft ;-) ), but I think it's fair to say that we have
a fairly large number of daily flights.  However, I don't think it's fair to
say that our "planes RUN ON TIME".  With the current monopoly the complaints
to the ombudsperson are apparently up close to seventy percent over last
year.

in Canada, when did that happen, and what does it mean in a practical sense?
