UOT interviews Aiyanas Ormond (April 27, 2015) - BDS Condemns Air Canada.

New BDS target: Air Canada

Air Canada is accused of serving in its on-board menu 2 controversial products, Sabra Hummus and Eden Springs water (more below). On top of this it was recently discovered that Air Canada has also a contract with Israel Aerospace Industries, a military defense company wholly owned by the government of Israel. IAI is well-known for its drone technology often “tested” on Gazans

To learn more about this we talked to Vancouver-based activist, Aiyanas Ormond, who explained to us why this major airline company became the latest target of the BDS movement in Canada

This interview was conducted by Sawssan Kaddoura

So it's pretty clear from this interview that any kind of commercial relationship with Israel is this activists' problem. So any thing they say about this just being about "settlements" is a lie.
