Support for the airline sector is needed now

by Goldy Hyder – President and Chief Executive Officer, Business Council of Canada

In a story in The Globe and Mail about reports that the federal government and Canada’s airlines are close to an agreement on support, Goldy Hyder highlights the urgency of the situation and the need to preserve jobs. His joint op-ed with Unifor’s Jerry Dias further emphasizes protecting this sector as it plays a vital part in Canada’s national strategic infrastructure, supporting small businesses that play a role in Canada’s supply chain.

“Support for the airline sector amounts to relief for the entire supply chain that is fed by it, including small businesses. Action by the federal government is needed now. Time is not our friend.”
