Disgraced Liar Upset About Boeing

A liar says what?

Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan suggested Wednesday that Boeing, the U.S. aerospace firm from whom the government is considering purchasing billions of dollars worth of fighter jets, can no longer be considered a trusted partner. And though he stopped short of cancelling the Liberal government’s plan to purchase 18 Super Hornet fighters from Boeing, Sajjan said company has damaged its relationship with Canada.

 Boeing has complained to the U.S. government that Canadian aerospace firm Bombardier is receiving subsidies, allowing it to sell its C-Series aircraft at below-market prices.

Boeing convinced the U.S. Commerce Department and International Trade Commission to launch an investigation into Bombardier.

“It is not the behaviour of a trusted partner,” Sajjan told industry representatives Wednesday at the CANSEC defence trade show in Ottawa. He called on Boeing to withdraw its complaint, saying Canada requires “trusted industry partners.”

    A trusted Defence Minister is too much to ask for in Shiny Pony’s Canada.

      They passed over an actual General for this post and picked a guy because he fit the inclusive Canadian narrative. Visible minority, the appearances of some “badassery” military street cred and respectable rank, however not high enough in the Canadian Forces food chain to really know what’s going on and easily controllable.

    Sajjan designed the Super Hornet. Little known fact.

    Trump said from the very beginning of his campaign that he would put America first. Is there any part of that the defense minister doesn’t understand?

    Brazil has also gone after Canada for subsidizing bomvardia.
