Transport Minister Marc Garneau says the federal government has no plans to order the grounding of the type of plane involved in the deadly crash in Ethiopia.
Garneau’s huddling with a panel of experts to determine if Canada should join the growing list of countries that have done so.
American aviation lawyer and analyst Arthur Rosenberg told Zoomer Radio’s ”Fight Back” with Libby Znaimer, he understands the reasoning behind grounding them temporarily.
”There’s enough here, in my judgement, to side with the U.K. aviation authority, Australia, China, and everyone else who has taken an abundance of precaution; a wait-and-see on this (type of) airplane,” Rosenberg explained.
Air Canada’s cancelling its Halifax to London and St. John’s to London flights today and tomorrow.
Meanwhile, the latest of the 18 Canadian victims to be identified was a high school teacher from the Hamilton-area.
Dawn Tanner was department head for special education at Hagersville Secondary School, where she’d taught since 2005.
Tanner also volunteered as a homework support person at a local centre for Indigenous students.
