Hi,
We will be arriving in Toronto from Detroit, then catching a connecting flight to Calgary. Will our bags be loaded onto the connecting flight or do we have to get them and go through security again?
If both flights are on Air Canada then you won't have to claim your bags in Toronto. You may have to identify them on a video screen.
