Canada more PC on obesity than US

The Supreme Court of Canada ruled that obese people can buy two seats and fly for the price of one.

This is so ridiculous. Even if body chemistry has a fair amount to do with obesity, personal eating habits are still part of the pic.

I'm 6-5. Should I get two seats for the price of one - mine and the one in front of me - for my legroom, over which I have even less control than an obese person does his or her weight? And, trust me, I've flown coach in enough MD-80s to really think this would be a great idea if I could get away with it.
