The Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, is currently on an official visit to China this week. Although the below link speaks to the potential closer ties between COMAC and Bombardier, could a CSeries order becoming closer to fruition by a Chinese carrier?

Quoting CRJ900X (Thread starter): Bombardier has not sold any CSeries planes to China, and so any orders could really solidify the program. Even a small order by a Chinese carrier would be a huge boost for Bombardier.
Since the CSeries fuselage is being built in China (Shenyang), I think there's a good chance that politics if nothing else will eventually result in sales to one or more Chinese carriers.
