Recent survey results indicate strong support among Canadians for Air
Canada`s provision of a low fare carrier. A nationwide telephone survey of 500
Canadians conducted by Ipsos-Reid between November 30 and December 6, 2001
found that 61 per cent of Canadians feel there are not enough low-fare
carriers in the domestic market and 82 per cent of Canadians would fly a low-
fare, no-frills airline operated by Air Canada, and evidence to date strongly
bears this out.

The Tango network expands for summer 2002 to include 23 Canadian cities
with service to Victoria, Vancouver, Abbotsford, Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary,
Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Thunder Bay, Windsor, London,
