WINNIPEG, June 6 (CNS) – Air Canada is expanding its

the two airlines better coordinate connecting flights in the two
countries. The venture is expected to be phased in by the end of
2018.
Stock markets in Japan, Taiwan and China rose Wednesday
morning ahead of a meeting of the Group of Seven. On Friday,
leaders from the world’s leading industrialized nations will sit
down to discuss various issues, including the United States’
decision to slap tariffs on foreign imports of steel, aluminum
and other goods.
Canadian National Railway will pour C$340 million into an
expansion of its railines in British Columbia. The company said
the move is being made to enlarge the overall network in the
