RE: Air Canada To Give Shareholders $300 Million

Well done to them.

Agree with AC7E7, better to give a 13 month wage or a lump sum payment than increase the base across the board to keep profitable when times are lean.

At the same time, when you can afford to, reward the team who generated the profits at every level.
