I dunno,

The last few flights I have taken, Airport improvement fees, security fees, and various taxes etc. have all cost more than what the airline is charging for the flight itself.
Put the blame where it is due.

Exactly... Apples to apples, this is, or suppose to be, intra -Canadian, short-haul flight on the cheapest Canadian air line...

100 Euros [$130CAD] gets you across the Europe for sure on the similar quality airline.. Google it...

We have never been to Halifax. Need help from those that live or have been there. Is this a great place to be a tourist? What can one do and see there in 5 days? How is the weather in mid to end October?
Thank you in advance.

So I guess we will just ignore the difference in population. How much of an impact can that have anyways? smh

It's not just the population because routes like YYZ-YVR are more popular than practically all intra-EU routes that don't start or end with London.

Then again, most countries in Europe are like the size of Muskoka lol.

Still mostly the population effect. 740 million plus people in Europe, and 37 million in Canada. And YYZ-YVR is longer than an intra European trip.

It's definitely a deciding factor but doesn't explain why routes like Toronto-Montreal are so expensive. Another factor is that Canada is ranked 31st out of 32 OECD countries in terms of the competitiveness of airport fees and taxes. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/busines ... travellers

Canada has three problems:
1. Low population
2. Large geographical area
3. Very high fees and taxes for flying

Only the third one is really solvable in the short-term. Anyway back to the deal.

I think you're looking at it too linear. The cost for flights say from Calgary to Regina or Calgary Winnipeg would be astronomical if they didn't have the far more frequently flown flights such as Toronto to Montreal to subsidise the others. I'm sure they have some National pricing plan that takes this into consideration. Just look at Alcohol in Ontario, pricing is pretty much the same across LCBO's but you can't tell me it cost the same amount to get a bottle of whiskey to Sudbury as it does to Toronto. Just my 2 cents.
