Trudeau Issues Veiled Threat To Missouri Governor Over Super Hornet Contract

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is again suggesting he will abandon a plan to purchase 18 Super Hornets from Boeing, CBC News reports.

Trudeau called-up Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens to remind him Tuesday how important the aerospace industry is to the state for jobs as well and “the shared importance of the aerospace industry to both economies,” as a statement from the prime minister’s office put it. Boeing has its head office in St. Louis.
