OTTAWA - Canada s official languages commissioner is asking Parliament for powers to force Air Canada to offer more French services.

Graham Fraser tabled a special report in the House of Commons today specifically about the airline, which under federal law is obligated to provide French-language services.

His report outlines four ways Parliament can help him pressure Air Canada, including giving him the power to levy fines for non-compliance.

Fraser says another option is to modify the law to allow a court to force the airline to pay damages and interest when it is found to have broken the rules.
