Mr. Milton seems to have acquired the habit of giving interviews in which he discusses future transactions that he would "like" to see, or which he "plans" to implement.

In the old days companies tried not to talk publicly about these things until they actually had a signed deal to announce. I suspect Mr. Milton is merely trying to stimulate the market for what he has to sell.

In the Aeroplan case, I am sure that if anyone offerred a billion dollars cash for 49 per cent of Aeroplan while leaving Air Canada (ACE) in control, Mr. Milton will jump at it. The problem is convincing possible candidates to bid up to that level.

Just my opinion.
