Inland Air Charters owner Bruce MacDonald is anxiously waiting to find out if his business will be funded by entrepreneurial icon, Jim Treliving.

But like the rest of Canada, MacDonald will have to wait until Tuesday, Nov. 20 at nine p.m. when The BIG Decision airs on CBC to find out his business’ fate.

MacDonald applied to the show earlier in the year requesting expert advice on investment to reach oversea markets.

“It’s been a really good learning experience for us. We learned an awful lot about getting a new market. You just can’t buy that,” MacDonald told the Prince Rupert Northern View.

MacDonald isn’t at liberty to expose what happened during filming of the episode, but no matter which way they decide he says he appreciative.

“Irregardless of what happens in the show, we had some tremendous exposure and we’re going to get even more nation-wide,” he said.

“We got what we needed. It’s not necessarily money we were looking for.”

Jim Treliving and a television crew traveled to Prince Rupert to record the episode back in September. Most known as the chairman and owner of Boston Pizza, Treliving also has investments in real estate, sports and oil change retailer Mr. Lube.

Interestingly enough, Treliving joined the RCMP when he was 19 years old, and was based in Prince Rupert in 1962 as an officer.
