Bombardier is eliminating 7,500 workers around the world, with roughly 2,000 positions being cut in Canada. But they’re hiring 3,700 in countries with lower costs. One expert says Canada’s struggle to be competitive in the international marketplace is one reason why.

Karl Moore, professor at the Desautels faculty of management at McGill University, said that Bombardier will have to “suffer some pain” here in Canada as it restructures in an attempt to return to profitability and competitiveness.

Thu, 2016-10-06 11:41

Air Canada and WestJet are facing a potential class action lawsuit after imposing checked baggage fees only days apart.

The proposed class action alleges that the two airlines colluded to impose the fees and have unjustly enriched themselves in the process.

...Karl Moore, an aviation expert at McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management, found the collusion allegations far fetched.

"I think it's highly unlikely they would collude, it's not the nature of the beast, they're just fierce competitors," Moore said.
