We in Canada will never forget how you screwed us on softwood lumber.
It’s unfortunate for all of us in Canada that our money and technology can be given away to large entities for literally $0. This type of thievery isn’t new.
But, airbus may prove to be a good partner for our product. They may even have the expertise and corrupt contacts to sell this sucker to more clients than bombardier proved capable of in the last few years.
I choose to remain optimistic in this situation. bombardier and airbus have an opportunity to develop a relationship and find synergies in their business units that may in fact lead to more work for bombardier and Canadians.
As a Canadian that’s what I expect and anticipate.
If Harper was in power I would expect bombardier to be a unit of Boeing by now and be waiting for the day when all manufacturing moves from Toronto and Montreal to Seattle and North Carolina.
As a Canadian, I used to love having America as our closest ally (I still do) but the days are getting rough when the current American leadership is breaking apart the trust we had strengthen over the century..
If America isn't playing fairly then Canada has no choice but to take protective measures. This will not help America or Canada as a whole but at least Canada won't be exploited by America.
if you people were smart you would ban US coal, you would not only have something to bargain with but you would also knock the ever-living shit out of the areas that voted for trump. Just about every single piece of american coal that leaves the US leaves via canada and there really is no other way to do it without a massive amount of port restructuring that would take years in what is already a dying industry.
I never thought I would be in a position where I am cheering on Canada over the American Appalachians but here we are.
Remember people, Canada does not subsidize lumber. That is why Canada keeps winning at the WTO and NAFTA.
Doesn't the US have to pay us a bunch of money the owe us?
