Bombardier still aims to outsource jobs as it seeks 1 Billion bailout from PM Useful Idiot

Bombardier Inc. is pushing to shift major chunks of work on its Toronto-built Q400 turboprop planes to Mexico and China, even as it seeks a billion-dollar bailout from Canadian taxpayers.

The transportation giant’s proposal to shift assembly of wings and cockpits for the turboprop planes to facilities in Mexico and China, respectively, would eliminate about 200 jobs at the suburban Toronto factory where those components are assembled now, sources familiar with the situation say.

Not to worry, PM Useful Idiot won’t let them down.

    Not to be outdone, Wynne as reported by the National Post, is giving over eleven million dollars to a firm that has over one hundred and sixty million dollars in cash sitting in its bank account. But hey, this is Ontario, we don’t worry about money here. Were too busy preparing for the big homosexual parades this Summer.

    I’m not flying on a plane that was made in China!

      I don’t blame you. The bolts that secured the Nipigon River bridge were made in China.

      I can’t really feel too bad for Unifor. That is the union that vowed to ‘get Harper’. So losing their jobs is kind of poetic justice. Suck it up babies.

        One day last summer the Missus and I were taking a walk on a suspension bridge over Elk Falls when I looked down at the cable joins. Made in China, said to the Missus lets get off this while we can.

    • Hope Justin buys one;)

    It is going to be a painful lesson but there it is, you leftist and union shitheads wanted this now you got it.

      And anyone that dares question this will be accused of channeling Trump.

    Let Mexico and China give Bombardier the billion dollars!

    It is time to increase the corporate tax rates here, but offset them with tax breaks for each Canadian job they provide up to a limit of say $100,000. That way if they move a job out of Canada they lose the tax break on each one.

      That never works.

    canada needs a trump to run for Pm

    Canadian politics, gotta love it!

    • Crony capitalism and wealth didtribution – for the political class

    It appears to be more expensive to get rid of Canadian jobs than to create them.

      That’s very funny.

    “Of course it looks bad,” said Chris Murray, an analyst with AltaCorp Capital in Toronto. “But it’s a responsible thing to do for them to look at how to cut costs on the supply chain.”

    Can’t help wondering why they used this fellow who is with an investment banking firm mainly centered on energy to quote. Were none of the other Bay Street whores available for comment? Like someone from the banks with Bombardier packed into their retail funds?

    Bombardier have been the feds’ favourite corporate welfare bum regardless of party from forever. This is just another revolting episode in a series that rivals Coronation Street in longevity. :-/
