INSIDE THE VILLAGE: Book a flight, then buckle up for a fight

Episode 12 of the podcast: Air travel is an absolute mess these days, as cancelled flights and lost suitcases pile up. Meet the man who has made it is his mission to stick up for passenger rights

Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local—and no topic is off-limits.

On this week's episode, we explore the chaos at Canadian airports with Gábor Lukács, president of the advocacy group Air Passenger Rights. He explains why so many flights have been delayed and cancelled—and what furious travellers can do about it.

Also on the podcast: the lifeguard shortage plaguing Ontario cities. Barbara Byers of the Lifesaving Society explains why some community pools and beaches may not be able to open this summer.

Launched in April, Inside the Village is a news and current affairs podcast that provides a weekly window into some of the best local journalism from across Village Media's chain of Ontario newsrooms. The program also explores bigger-picture issues that impact people across the province.
