Federal, provincial, and city politicians have united to keep the United Nations International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) from moving from its headquarters from the city of Montreal.
In two days of meetings (May 2 and 3), Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, Quebec provincial Minister of International Relations Jean-François Lisée, and City of Montreal Mayor Michael Applebaum have been lobbying to keep ICAO.
RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda has a report.
