The company says handlers at San Francisco International Airport took the dog out of his crate on Monday after his flight was delayed and the pet either slipped out of his collar or broke it. Air Canada says the dog, an Italian greyhound named Larry, bolted and was last spotted about 5 miles from the airport. TODAY IN THE SKY: Your bookmark for the day’s most interesting airline stories The local CBS TV station took interest in Larry’s disappearance and says it asked the airline about its procedures after obtaining a statement about the incident. Instead, the station says it accidentally received an email from spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick urging his colleagues to ignore the inquiry and what sounded like a jab at the U.S. government shutdown. “I think I would just ignore, it is local news doing a story on a lost dog. Their entire government is shut down and about to default and this is how the US media spends its time,” the station said the e-mail read. Word quickly spread online, with many voicing their outrage over the company’s response. “If you ever fly with your pet, you might not want to choose Air Canada,” one wrote on Twitter.

In the first period, Canada had a 5-4 edge in shots that failed to reflect its territorial control. The USA’s game was disjointed but the Americans’ speed still led to a couple of quality chances that Szabados (15 saves) rejected. Ouellette sent Canada into a 1-0 lead at 4:16 of the second, converting Jayna Hefford’s cross-slot power play pass. Only 1:21 later, Bailey Bram knocked in Canada’s second goal during a goal-mouth scrum.

Until a late power play, the U.S. put one shot on goal during an earlier player-advantage. The extent of Canadian domination was reflected not only in the two goals but the 12-2 shot advantage in the second period and 17-6 through 40 minutes. Then came the third with Tara Watchorn putting Canada into a 3-0 lead at 4:54. The United States finally broke through during a two-player advantage. Brianna Decker swatted the puck out of the air right in front of Szabados at 11:05. Gigi Marvin brought the pro-USA crowd to full throttle at 14:39 by cutting the lead to 3-2. The U.S. kept up the attack, but the Canadians secured their second consecutive win against the Americans at Gutterson, following up their 5-4 overtime victory in the championship game of the 2012 IIHF women’s world championships.
If the government and the elections agency disagree on the proposed legislation, Mayrand will be able to take advice from a whoas who of Canadian politics. Along with Binnie and Fraser, the board includes former premiers Bob Rae and Roy Romanow, former Reform Party leader Preston Manning, former federal cabinet ministers John Manley and Michael Wilson, Conservative Sen. Hugh Segal, journalist Lise Bissonnette, political scientist Paul Thomas, former Ontario ombudsman Roberta Jamieson, MichAle Thibodeau-DeGuire, of laAcole Polytechnique de MontrAal, and Cathy Wong, of the Quebec YMCA. In a release, Elections Canada said the board will advise Mayrand aon matters relating to Canadaas electoral system, its voting processes, and support for a vigorous democracya That may include advising Mayrand on how to react to the governmentas Elections Act changes, said Jean-Pierre Kingsley, who was chief electoral officer until 2006. aThis seems to be to be a good idea because it allows the chief electoral officer to have this body, against which to measure proposals from the government for change, and to accept significant support for his views, and their views, and at the same time to help him steer the course for all the modernizations for the statutes,a he said. The relationship between Elections Canada and the Conservatives has often been difficult. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was a vocal critic of the organization when he was with the National Citizens Coalition, once deriding the election bureaucrats as ajackasses.a The party complained loudly about Elections Canadaas investigation and prosecution of the Tories for exceeding local election limits in the 2006 election. The party pleaded guilty and paid $52,000 in fines in 2011. The prime ministeras former parliamentary secretary, Peterborough MP Dean Del Mastro, was often critical of the agency when he was pointman for the government on the arobocalla scandal. He himself now faces charges of exceeding spending limits on his 2008 campaign, and has left the Conservative caucus. Kingsley said that he hopes the government and Elections Canada are not headed for a showdown over the upcoming legislation. aOne could only hope that with all the experiences the government has undergone in its relationship with the parliamentary officers, that this would be gone by now,a he said. aBut who knows?
