ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effort of the Canadian Lung Association to encourage the Canadian airline industry to prohibit pets in passenger cabins to protect people with respiratory problems. Spokesman Cameron Bishop states that the primary responsibility of the association is to protect the people with asthma and other pet-related allergies. However, Air Canada repealed the said prohibition and opted to implement pet-friendly airline policies instead.
