Neil your are absolutely ridiculous.
Financing is the name of the game, Airbus does it, Boeing does it, Embraer does it.
This potential order means the world for Bombardier, and Canada as a whole. If Bombardier wins this contract, it will greatly contribute to the economy. Yes, a gain for the Montreal economy is a gain for Canada as a whole. if Canada helps to finance the deal, the spin-off's from the sales in terms of taxation revenue will be greater than the whatever is dished out.
Once again you make it seem clear that you stand against this because Bombardier is a YUL
company. I am certain that if Bombardier is not based in YUL
, you would gladly encourage the financing of this impending order.
There is no product that is no more internationally recognized and known than the CRJ. Perhaps there is no company in Canada that is as internationally recongized as Bombardier.
If Brazil is financing aircraft sales, Canada needs to do the same in order to be competitive. Bombardier is one of the top 3 largest Canadian exporters, for the sake of the Canadian economy, it needs to remain viable.
