AIR TRAF­FIC CON­TROLLERS SEND PIZZA TO U.S. WORK­ERS

Vancouver Sun - - CANADA -

Cana­dian air traf­fic con­trollers have bought hun­dreds of piz­zas for their Amer­i­can coun­ter­parts over the past few days in what has be­come an in­dus­try-wide show of sup­port dur­ing the U.S. gov­ern­ment’s par­tial shut­down. Peter Duf­fey, the head of the Cana­dian Air Traf­fic Con­trol As­so­ci­a­tion, said the ini­tia­tive be­gan Thurs­day when em­ploy­ees at Ed­mon­ton’s con­trol cen­tre took up a col­lec­tion to buy piz­zas for con­trollers in An­chor­age, Alaska. Other fa­cil­i­ties across Canada de­cided to join in, and the idea snow­balled.
