Hockey sticks to be allowed on U-S planes
The U-S apparently doesn't share Transport Canada's opinion that hockey sticks are blunt objects that can cause serious injury.
The U-S Transportation Security Administration has announced that starting next month, it will let airline passengers carry hockey sticks aboard planes for the first time since the 9-11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
Transport Canada has no immediate plans to rethink its ban on sticks in airplane cabins.
The T-S-A will also allow passengers to carry small knives, souvenir baseball bats and golf clubs onto commerical flights.
