Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Last week, the president of Air Canada told us that, in terms of costs and productivity, Aveos was not a globally competitive business. However, in 1988, the then president of Air Canada said that the company was making a significant profit from its maintenance centres. He also said that Canadian workers were helping to create an effective work centre.
What has changed since 1988? How do you explain the fact that, in 1988, it appeared as though Aveos was effective and was going to succeed but, last week, it was said that this company is not competitive?
