Oct. 24, 2006: Bombardier and related

Update Oct. 25, 2006: three parts

1. CBC has mentioned repeatedly the loss of Quebec jobs but why is there no investigation of why Bombardier, after numerous infusions of taxpayer dollars, is able to (move offshore?) create a wholly-owned business in China, and is thriving there and, apparently, throughout Southeast Asia. Yet Canadians have propped up this business with tax dollars. Investigate and explain to the Canadian taxpayers why this is happening and why taxpayers don't have an interest in Bombardier's foreign business(es).

This might help in investigating: There are more links further down, as well.

2. I inadvertently omitted a link to Apr. 20, 2005.

In exploring why Bombardier in Canada is laying off workers, considering that it seems to own Bombardier Global Express and/or Skyjet International and has work in China, check:

End of update

CBC news with Nancy Wilson at noon: Bombardier [The emphasis was the same all day with other news readers.]

The emphasis in the introduction by Nancy Wilson to the news was on loss of Bombardier jobs not the creation of 600 Bombardier jobs in Toronto. Finally, another news reader mentioned it.

Wilson also talked animatedly about the gay marriage issue and, of course, the decision on the terrorism security certificates -- something to do with the definition of terrorism. Check further.

Bombardier aerospace: [Creating 800 jobs in Toronto] -- cutting 1,330 jobs in Montreal and Belfast, as it reduces production of its regional jets to contend with flagging demand.

While the shift in production means a loss of more than 1,300 jobs in Montreal and Belfast, it could mean a creation of 800 jobs at Bombardier Aerospace in Toronto.

The low cost Q400 turboprops are being used by Porter Airlines, which began flying this week out of Toronto's Island Airport.

At their leadership convention, undoubtedly, Liberals will make promises about "initiatives" in Quebec and then, there are always the China / other Southeast Asia deals ... if only they are returned to power.

What is going on with Bombardier? Note that Bombardier has Bombardier Global Express and/or Skyjet International ... so what is failing? Only the work in Canada? Not getting the funds from government? See the Technology Partnerships entry. Check the following.
