    Don’t go out and buy Air Canada stock just because Donald Trump was elected; the initial reaction is not too dissimilar from that following the elections of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.  Although many liberals were unhappy with their electoral success, the aftermath was far short of the predicted apocalypse.  Given Donald Trump’s record, expect that […]
