The company’s chairman, Laurent Beaudoin, says its new CSeries jetliner will take to the air again by the end of June after a one-month delay in crucial flight testing sparked by an engine failure in a test aircraft.

Dollarama Inc. (TSX: DOL). Retail. Down $2.58, or 2.71 per cent, to $92.65 on one million shares. The drop in share price came despite the company having reported sales rose by almost 12 per cent to $501.1 million in the first quarter amid challenging weather conditions that affected consumer traffic to stores during the winter and spring. Sales were up from $448.1 million in the year-ago period, and contributed to a net profit of $53.2 million, up from $45.6 million in the same quarter last year.
