Expo show sold

The organizer of Canadian Off-road Expo has sold the show. Outbound Productions of Red Deer has been staging the annual event in this city since 2005, with similar events held elsewhere as well. It announced last week that it’s passed the rights to Canadian Off-road Expo to Family Productions of Edmonton. Outbound Productions will remain involved in the areas of live events and exhibitor relations, and there will still be a show in Red Deer — this year on Sept. 11 and 12. A Canadian Off-road Expo will also take place in Edmonton this year from May 7 to 9.


Strike expected

BERLIN — More than 4,000 pilots for Germany’s Lufthansa AG airline launched a four-day strike early Monday that is expected to cause headaches for travellers around the world. Lufthansa spokeswoman Stefanie Stotz confirmed the strike, organized by the Cockpit pilots union, began at midnight (2300GMT). It was to last until Thursday.

The airline enacted a special, limited flight plan and said it regretted “the inconveniences caused” to passengers. Lufthansa was forced to cancel hundreds of flights.
