More to the point is if Canada can privatize air traffic controllers, why can't we?

I think meat inspectors are different, however. to let corporation police their own product is like putting the wolf in care of the hen house, as they say. It is the job of the meat inspectors to catch the cheaters who are ready to absorb the cost of law suits for tainted meat. It is the job of air traffic controllers to prevent accidents. Though it is true that airline companies will cut corners - overwork their pilots, shoddy maintenance, etc., but I think it is not to the advantage of the airline companies to have a plane landing hit another taking off, etc.
