Commons transports committee chair to call on Sungwings and VIA Rail for travel disruption explanations

The chair of the Commons Transport committee says Sunwings Airlines and VIA Rail have to answer for Christmas travel disruptions that left hundreds of people stranded.

Liberal MP Peter Shiefke says he plans to hold committee hearings and will call upon representatives from the two companies to explain themselves.

Sunwings left hundreds of people stranded in Mexico and Cuba when it cancelled several flights due to pre-Christmas storms.
