Our cover feature for this issue focuses on offshore tax cheats and new laws put in place by the federal government to combat this crime, which costs the Canadian economy an estimated $8 billion annually. We had an opportunity to speak directly with the former National Revenue Minister Gail Shea about these amendments.

Porter Airlines, led by CEO Robert Deluce, is making a bold move to become the country's third national airline carrier, looking to upgrade to CS100 jets in order to fly to further destinations. But there's one sticking point - they want to do it at Billy Bishop Toronto Centre island airport. Concerns about noise and pollution abound and now Air Canada and WestJet want equal time at the tiny landing strip.

Additionally, we have a Q&A with David Wright, former Canadian Ambassador to NATO; changes to rail safety in the wake of the Lac Megantic tragedy; and a financial update from BMO Capital Markets Chief Economist Doug Porter. Treasury Board President Tony Clement also provides us with in-depth analysis on Open Data - the next generation, and the government's pledge for greater transparency.

You'll also want to read our regular monthly columns on social media from Melonie Dodaro and Alex Carrick and our insightful Business In Action profiles. There is all of that and much more in this edition of CBJ.
