BREAKING | Canada bans Boeing 737 Max 8
Canada has banned Boeing 737 Max 8 airplanes following Sunday's deadly crash in Ethiopia that killed 18 Canadians.
Transport Minister Marc Garneau has announced that the airplanes have been grounded in Canada over safety concerns.
Garneau says the decision to ground the plane was made after a review of the evidence about the aircraft and that new information came to light this morning.
The Max 8's have been grounded by the European Union, China, New Zealand, and Australia, among other countries.
The United States have not banned the aircraft.
Sunwing Airlines said late Tuesday that it was temporarily grounding its four Max 8 aircraft, and the union representing Air Canada flight attendants voiced concerns about its members flying on the planes.
An Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed Sunday morning just after takeoff outside Addis Ababa and all 157 people on board died, the second crash of a Max 8 in six months.
