Families of Ontario residents killed in Ethiopian Airlines crash suing Boeing; Canadian kidnapped in Nigeria
Families of ten Ontario residents killed in Ethiopian Airlines crash suing Boeing
The families of 10 Ontario residents killed in last month’s Ethiopian Airlines crash are suing airplane maker Boeing, alleging it was blinded by greed as it rushed its 7-37 Max jets to market.
Lawyers in Chicago have filed the suit on behalf of a Brampton family that lost six members and a man who lost his wife and three young children, who lived in Hamilton. The suit claims Boeing put profits over safety and that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration enabled the plane’s rush to market.
