Bains to take Bombardier’s federal aid request for its C-Series passenger jet project to Cabinet
There is a global competition for investment, and the jobs and tax revenues that flow from investment, so if Canada is to be in the game the challenge is to be there in the most transparent and cost-effective way.
Bombardier’s request is on the desk of Navdeep Bains, the minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, who will have to take his recommendation to Cabinet for approval. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, correctly, says, ‘there has to be a strong business case’ to justify federal support. The Hill Times photographs by Jake Wright
