Air Canada to Take Delivery of Boeing 787 Dreamliner

After waiting seven years, Air Canada executives will finally head to Seattle this weekend to pick up a Boeing 787 plane, the first of 37 Dreamliners on order. ... McGill University business professor Karl Moore believes the Dreamliner gives Air Canada a competitive edge against Canadian rivals. WestJet is looking to expand into international markets, with a possible wide-body fleet eventually. It is beginning service to Dublin next month, but because it is using Boeing 737 planes, flights from Toronto require a stop in St. John’s.

Being a Winner in Business Doesn’t Mean You’re Not a Jerk

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged derisive comments against visible minorities will likely cast an enduring cloud over the successful career the billionaire built, despite a pattern of racially charged behaviour. ...

Reflections from South Korea

Recently, I visited South Korea and Mongolia along with a group of McGill University undergraduates and alumni.
