Canadian competition panel considers limits on foreign investment in airlines

In June 2008 the Canadian Competition Review Panel released its report Compete to Win.

Citing the situation in Australia and New Zealand where "ninth freedom" cabotage is permitted and the limit on foreign investment in an international airline is 49% (currently 25% in Canada), the panel urges the Canadian government to adopt similar regulatory measures.

News coverage of the report appeared in an article in the National Post on 26 June 2008 and an article in the Vancouver Sun on 27 June 2008.
