With luck, this'll mean taxpayers won't be on the hook for any more free, forgivable loans to the Laurentien Elitists that own and operate Bombardier.
Corruption in politics doesn't scare me.
What scares me is how comfortable people are doing nothing about it.

They still make business jets, trains, skidoos, Sea-doos and motor-trikes...lots of potential for taxpayers to still get in on the action.  :nod:

Bombardier is now just corporate jets and trains

BRP is Sea Doos, Ski Doos, and CAN AM different company now

Viking (Longview) is all of DHC 02-08 plus water bomber.  They are building the Twin Otter and just got an order for 5 new build water bombers, plus the end of the Dash 8 production orders

Mitsi will be the CRJ they want the engineers, service division

Airbus is A220 the old CS100

Ah, thought BRP was a subsidiary.  Happily stand corrected, although disappointed I can get a taxpayer/subsidizer discount on a Sea-Doo...  :(
