Bombardier's not seeing too much interest in Asia for its new C Series jet. Why? Check out my short piece on it... 
At the Singapore air show, the only real bit of good news for Bombardier came from back home, where Air Canada said it could buy up to 75 C Series jets

My report from New Delhi (and Mumbai and Uttar Pradesh) on how India has (and hasn't) changed since Narendra Modi took over. There's a mix of optimism and impatience, as he tinkers with economic policies that fall short of the bold reforms he first promised -- as well as ongoing tensions between his Hindu nationalist supporters and India's religious minorities.

A fun read on a Vancouver float plane company's partnership with a Chinese billionaire.
It’s nearly every entrepreneur’s dream to crack the vast Chinese market – with its $10-trillion economy and 1.3 billion consumers. Iain Marlow tagged along with Vancouver-based float-plane operator Harbour Air as its top executives rice-wined-and-dined their way across the Middle Kingdom

An analysis piece I wrote on the geopolitics at play in Nepal's tragedy.

My talented partner Nicole Baute has just relaunched the webpage for her communications business, with brand new services that are designed for entrepreneurs, SMEs and non-profits who want to learn how to write more effectively and tell compelling stories about themselves and their businesses.

She's also now offering affordable and practical media training (she's a former Toronto Star reporter). Check it out, if you're interested!

"Everything is changing." My report from Solo and Jakarta on Indonesia's new president, Jokowi, and where he's taking the economy.
