Bombardier is not receiving public spectators - they are only taking invited guests. Their neighbour at Mirabel, however, is admitting public, at 20 Canadian $ per ticket. Information in Quebec language only:

Question on this project: has Bombardier selected a launch customer yet for the C-Series in the Asia-Pacific region? I sense that Air Canada would be a potential launch customer for the new aircraft by the Canadian manufacturer, and I sense that it'll mean Bombardier is maturing well in the regional aircraft market.

That's good. Any other potential buyers for Asia-Pacific? I mean, the aviation industry out there is booming...

We are witnessing very interesting times. The CS took off for the first time today, 359 is already in test flights, the 789 is about to do it's first flight any day now. MRJ is close to finishing they're airframe, and on, and on.

i believe Spicejet ( India) is looking at C series.. they already fly the Qseries and the Bombardier CEO was down in India to meet them and some other Indian carriers.

One thing you immediately notice is how quiet the CS100 is on takeoff. It makes the 737's and A320's with CFM56 or V2500 engines seem loud in comparison.
