Air Canada refuses passenger access to washroom and she pissed herself

Seriously what the he’ll is going on with airlines these days? Physically assaulting a passenger because they refuse to reschedule their flight or being charged because they raise their voice and get a little raucous on the plane. Now this woman who had asked to use the bathroom to relieve herself was refused for the 7 hour flight. After holding it for 2 hours her bladder gave out and she was forced to sit in it for the duration of the flight.

I feel like the passenger is partially to blame.

If I have to go take a piss or take a shit, you know I'm going to find my way to a toilet. I can't imagine just being told no and pissing myself.
Brown ahead for Bure. Bure going in.. he scores! Pavel Bure has won it for the Vancouver Canucks! It's a triple overtime hat-trick for Vancouver!

The only way I can picture this scenario being played out:
-The plane is in taxi mode (pushed back from the door)
-At least in Canada/US, all PAX must be buckled in and "ready for takeoff"

That being said, they were sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours. This happens all the time (e.g. ground strike due to lightning), that being said, usually the pilots will turn off the seatbelt sign and/or engine to let PAX roam free and serve water/snacks. In this case, after seeing the PAX plead, the FA could have escorted them to the bathroom and (optionally) call the Captain to let them know so that they don't take off.

If true, this is bad. TWO people deserve compensation for this. The woman, and then the next passenger booked in that seat.

Enforcement for washrooms is too much these days. On one of my flights there was a senior who had to pee and it was close to landing. Guess what, plane landed and the very senior person was in washroom relieving himself plus family member assisting him by the door. Staff didnt make fuss or throw a security tantrum. Everyone happy nobody took it personal.
In north america the security theatre is too much all the time anyway its security theatre

I had to desperately use the washroom on a plane once. There was big lineup at the regular washrooms. As I proceeded to the first class washrooms, I was stopped and told by an attendant I could not use them. I told them in a clear and steady voice - I HAVE TO GO. They let me proceed. I am not sure what I would have done if they did not let me proceed but I would not have quietly sat down.
