Default Two seats for One! (only in Canada)

Obese have right to two airline seats - Yahoo! News

"OTTAWA (Reuters) – Obese people have the right to two seats for the price of one on flights within Canada, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on Thursday.

The high court declined to hear an appeal by Canadian airlines of a decision by the Canadian Transportation Agency that people who are "functionally disabled by obesity" deserve to have two seats for one fare.

The airlines had lost an appeal at the Federal Court of Appeal in May and had sought to launch a fresh appeal at the Supreme Court. The court's decision not to hear a new appeal means the one-person-one-fare policy stands.

The appeal had been launched by Air Canada, Air Canada Jazz and WestJet."

And chill their Beer - like God intended.

Of course, not like they've got much choice in the matter. What with all that snow an' ice; they chill their steaks, chicken, hot rolls.............

Sounds like I can actually fly in Canada. Well since my shoulders are half in each seat to the sides of me anyway, now how do I get up there?

Why don't we just rename Canada "The Land of the Looters" and leave it at that?
