According to Reuters, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said on Tuesday that Canada has no plans to ground Boeing (BA.N) 737 MAX 8 aircraft, but is ready to “act immediately” to suspend flights if new information emerges indicating there is a problem.

Garneau said, “This is not conclusive, but it is something that points possibly in that direction and at this point we feel that that threshold has been crossed and that is why we are taking these measures."
