4. FAA promotes US Aviation industry more than safety

so don't expect any action unless an American airline experiences a crash with this Boeing plane.

7. Europe was faster to ground it because Boeing is an American company

I would imagine our FAA might be quicker to ground a plane built by a foreign company

Canada grounds Boeing 737 Max 8, bans jet from airspace following fatal crashes

Canada is grounding all of its Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft and banning the jet from entering its airspace until further notice as safety concerns continue to mount following two deadly crashes.

"This safety notice restricts commercial passenger flights from any air operator, both domestic and foreign, of the Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft from arriving, departing, or overflying Canadian airspace," Transport Minister Marc Garneau told reporters earlier today.

Canada had been one of the last holdouts on temporarily banning the the Max 8s in the wake of the recent Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 people on board, including 18 Canadians. The U.K., the European Union, Australia and other countries had moved already to ban the jet from their airspace in response to growing safety concerns.

Garneau said the decision to issue the safety notice was made after his department received new data suggesting a similarity between the Ethiopian Airlines crash and another deadly crash near Indonesia in October. He pointed out, however, that the information was new and unproven.
