Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

TVA must be pretty certain of their sources because this article seems to have driven the stock price down 7% at midday and closing 4% shaving over 10 million of TRZs market cap. I think TC will have to stay something in the next couple weeks and it wouldn’t surprise me to see them overwhelmingly in...

Re: CEWS

We all got into this knowing the score.
We cannot allow the WAGCON to permanently erode to temporarily save junior jobs. We already have a 30% pay cut due to our hours cut saving hundreds of jobs. Eventually we have to worry about the quality of the remaining jobs.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Don't read too much into it .. it's just posturing. The final decision rest with Garneau and the government .. he approved the Canadian North/First Air merger and that deal did create a monopoly. I have a feeling this deal is going to get the green light as a measure to help the health of the indus...

You Transat boys should write Letko and tell him to go f×ck himself, he doesn't know what he's talking about regarding the reason for the low share valuation. He doesn't know anything.

Letko seems pretty unenthusiastic about the deal now.
Certainly not the public tone I would expect from Transat’s largest shareholder.

Yes AC would pay 20-40 million for a peak up the skirt assuming they use their army of lawyers to break up the deal. AT will most probably react like Embraer: « The deal calls for a $100 million breakup fee but Embraer is poised to sue Boeing for significantly more, alleging that the long period of...
