Class action proposed on airline baggage fees

Thu, 2016-09-29 12:00

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.

L'Experience Transformatrice d'Alain Brunet

Thu, 2016-09-29 11:44

Employé de la Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ) depuis 35 ans, Alain Brunet a gravi les échelons un à un jusqu’au sommet. Déterminé à ne jamais stagner, il est retourné sur les bancs d’école en 1997 pour suivre un programme accéléré d’administration de l’entreprise à HEC Montréal. « C’est un programme conçu pour les gens dans l’action. Il m’a permis de prendre du recul, après une dizaine d’années comme gestionnaire. J’ai toujours été ouvert à l’idée de me former davantage. J’aime apprendre. Ça alimente ma vie ! », dit-il.
