The families of Canadians killed in the Ethiopian Airlines crash last month have launched a lawsuit against plane maker Boeing.
Lawyers in Chicago have filed the suit on behalf of a Brampton, Ont., family that lost six members and a man who lost his Hamilton-based wife and three young children.
All 157 people on board Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 were killed when the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft en route from Addis Ababa to Nairobi crashed on March 10.
Lawyers for the families behind the lawsuit allege Boeing was blinded by greed as it rushed its 737 Max 8 jets to market, claiming the company put profits over safety.
The families have also filed a claim against the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, alleging the regulator enabled the plane’s rush to market.
The allegations have not been proven in court.

LONDON — Britain’s government and opposition are holding more talks about striking a compromise Brexit deal, although neither side sounds optimistic about progress.
Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives and the left-wing Labour Party plan to resume negotiations Monday. But they remain divided over how close a relationship to seek with the European Union after Britain leaves.
The EU has agreed to delay Brexit until Oct. 31 to give Britain’s deadlocked politicians more time to approve a divorce deal.
But there has been little progress toward breaking the impasse that has seen lawmakers reject the government’s Brexit agreement three times.
Unless the agreement is approved by May 22, Britain will hold elections the next day for seats in the European Parliament, almost three years after the U.K. voted to leave the 28-nation bloc.
