When the American Eagle ATR72 crashed, there was a comment made on
Canadian television about the ATR42s in Canada having had additional
de-icing equipment installed (or existing ones improved, I forget) and
that they had been operating for years without problems.

Can anyone confirm or deny that Transport Canada had placed more
stringent rules on the ATR42 then had the US DOT/FAA with regards to
de-icing ?
