    Well, it evens up the odds a little.

    Still not going to risk my best folding travel scissors. May bring along a cheap pair to see.

    I wish they had this when that fat guy ate my in-flight peanuts.

      He was allergic and you could have done a M*A*S*H emergency tracheotomy? I think there might have been one on “House” too.

    But certain religious groups can bring their “religious” knives if longer.

      Muslims? After all, their religion ask that they strike off the heads and the fingers of the unbelievers (Qur’an 8:12), and how can you perform an Islamicly required cutting procedure without a sharp knife, axe, or sword?

    Well it makes sense, now that all the returning jihadi war criminals are re-integrated, and Trudeau has reassured us that the safety of Canadians is paramount. What could go wrong? I wonder if box-cutter blades less than 6cm are OK.

      I had the same thought about box-cutters since they meet the dimensions.

      • Maggat

        Not if you have one with the push-out snap off blades.

  • Watchman

    So boxcutters are OK again, as they were last on September 11, 2001?

    What could go wrong?

    Trump should step in and ban anyone with them from leaving the secure area of any American airport when they arrive.

    The late Frank Sinatra resurrected himself to describe how he handles these situations.
