Flight prices

I got a call from my Mother today who asked me when I was next going to be back in the UK. I told her I wasn't sure, but would have a nose at the prices. Took a meander into town and paused by the window of a travel centre. There was a flight to London advertised for CDN$149. "That's good. I can afford that." I thought. Then I took another look at the small print. In addition to the cost of the flight, there was an additional CDN$465 in fees and taxes. "Ah. Not so good."

Anyone out there justify these taxes and fees? I mean really justify them.

Bill, I think that the "taxes" are for the bankers' rescue package, funding global warming liars, and bribes to the government for zero-rating aviation fuel.
