Air Canada searches employee rooms


— Air Canada upset employees after sending corporate security investigators to France to search the rooms of flight crews for beer and soft drinks after the employees checked out. The investigators reportedly sifted through wastebaskets and took pictures. The airline, which has posted four losses in the last five years, launched a program last fall to focus on employee theft. Air Canada estimated it’s losing as much as nine per cent of cabin stock each year as a result of employee theft, or roughly $9 per day for every employee.
