On Tuesday, Ottawa announced rules that could make it easier for airlines to form joint ventures and attract foreign investment. WestJet shares advanced 2 per cent on the news, although the stock gave up those gains on Wednesday. Nevertheless, at least one insider saw the Wednesday dip as a buying opportunity.
