Air Canada’s pilot and flight attendants are upset with the airline because of the way it conducted an investigation of employees involving the theft of beer and soft drinks from Air Canada’s airplanes.

The airline’s corporate security investigators flew to France and searched the Paris hotel rooms of some crew members, with the assistance of hotel security, after they had checked out of the rooms following a layover. The investigators sifted through wastebaskets and took pictures, according to a report in the

Montreal Gazette.
