>>> West jet is calling for a full federal government review into the way airports are funded in canada. Canada's major airports are operated on federally owned land and they must pay rent to the government. Part of those costs and up getting past on to consumers in the form of extra fees charged on their tickets. The ceo says they faced... And is calling on ottawa to stop collecting rent. >> Joining me to discuss this is... At mcgill university. John what is your take on this. Do you think the aviation funding model needs to be reviewed? >> Yes. We've made it clear in a few of our academics... A couple weeks ago and I think we were pretty unanimous in saying we have to review this because the system really has lived beyond its usefulness. Covid has done a number in terms of the financial status of canadian airports. There has to be a review in terms of how airports are being funded and how they are going to fund future expenditure. >> What you expect a potential review to look like? >> Right now we are in a user paying model which everybody has been saying is broken. Is not the way we should be looking at it. West jet is looking at it the same. They want to have these charges removed because he wants fares to be able to go lower. The problem is if you remove those charges from the canadian travelling public, someone has to fuel those revenues that are being generated by those fees. Unfortunately the remedy for that would be all of canadian taxpayers rather than just air travellers who will be funding airports, ready to take on that challenge just yet. >> What sort of revenue do these fees bring in for the government and does it all go back into maintaining and improving the airport? >> The airport improvement fees are fees that you pay at each airport. That money stays with the airport. That's being used to fund the capital needs of the airports. The other fees that are there... Some of the other operational fees stay with the government. The big number is the rent that is being paid by the airports to the government and it's over $500 million a year. That rent is being thrown back in the general revenues. The airlines, the airports would like to see that show up back in the airports as an investment by the federal government to prove -- improve the state of the airport situation. >> How likely do you think the government is to take this request seriously? >> I think they are starting. We've got a review underway by the competition bureau about the state of competition and in the impact of these fees and that is starting shortly. We have a government looking at alternative financing models for the airports to look at having additional sovereign funds that we have in canada invest in airports. And make it easier for those funds that are investing overseas and invest in canada. There is some attention now weather the government is ready and willing to start looking at user pay as a concept and to review alternative, there's no indication that the government is ready to talk about that just yet. >> West jet also announced that they will introduced the lowest fees to passengers who are willing to forgo a carry-on bag. Do you think that's a smart business model and an option that passengers are likely to take up? >> Everybody's going to want cheaper fair. I think whatever we see happening by these additional fees that are showing up left right and centre, this is not unheard of. Airlines are trying to peel back the onion and to make some of the fees -- some of the services that you expect in a ticket, roll them back and make them optional and have additional revenues to it. It's another attempt to look at so-called ancillary fees, they've called them junk fees. And to basically add another level of fee structures on top of what they charge as a ticket. So it really is an attempt by the airlines to segment their travelling public into various buckets and they are looking to charge those people. >> Thank you so much for your time today. Program coordinator of the global aviation leadership program at mcgill university. >> My pleasure. >> The crown has wrapped up it's case against admitted killer jeremy skibicki. Today handwritten letters penned

by him were entered as evidence, giving a look into his mind while in prison. Alexandra, where did these letters come from? >> Homicide detectives learned that he was writing letters to another inmate at a women's institution in nova scotia. He is currently on trial for four counts of first-degree murder. He pleaded not guilty but has admitted to killing four addition is -- indigenous women. His defences arguing that he should be found not criminally responsible due to mental disorder. At the time's québec he was being held at the miller ridge correctional centre about in total nine letters were cemented by detective sergeant michael mcdonald with the winnipeg police service told the court that some of the letters were destroyed and those letters he writes about his quote extreme views and then includes some anti-semitic themes. He tried to pursue own -- a romantic relationship with the inmate, calling her sweetheart and saying he would consider marrying her. He also discussed his case riding I'm seriously considering giving up even though I have a not criminally responsible defence with experts. I could have 100 experts while the crown has none and I would still get convicted by a bunch of morons. The final letter was written on april 25th 2023 by him and it's not clear if there are any other letters sent or received after this time. The crown wrapped up it's case but the defence is expected to make its case on june 3rd. The trial is scheduled to wrap up on june 6th. >> Serial killer robert pickton will remain in a medically induced coma for at least the next few days after he was attacked in a québec prison. Police say medical staff will need to assess whether he can live without life-support. The 74-year-old was attacked on sunday. He is serving a life sentence for six counts of second degree murder. He was charged with the murder of 26 women, many of them indigenous. Police will be questioning a 51-year-old suspect in the attack.
