    Reuters reports that China’s civil aviation regulator has suspended operations of all Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets in its fleet. Aviation officials asked domestic airlines to suspend the commercial operations of the planes by 6:00 p.m. local time one day after the deadly crash of a 737 MAX 8 by Ethiopian Airlines. The Ethiopian Airlines aircraft is the same model plane as the Lion Air flight that crashed into the Java Sea shortly after take-off from Jakarta on Oct. 29, killing all 189 people on board.

At a news conference, Transport Minister Marc Garneau told a news conference that Ottawa would bar 737 MAX 8 and 9 jets from leaving, arriving, or flying over Canada.
