The Federal Court of Canada has directed the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to rehear complaints by two former Air Canada pilots who allege the airline discriminated against them on the basis of age. In 2007, the tribunal originally dismissed the complaints filed by George Vilven and Neil Kelly, who submitted that they were unfairly forced to retire at age 60. Raymond Hall, a lawyer and an Air Canada pilot who is helping represent the retired pilots, said yesterday he's pleased the Federal Court has referred the issue back to the tribunal for reconsideration under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Captain Hall turns 60 in July. AC.B (TSX) closed unchanged at 85 cents.
