From a P.E.I. guide to Bombardier, taxpayers’ group reveals ‘winners’ of its government waste awards
Bombardier Inc. (Winner)
If winners were selected solely on their raw drain on the public purse, then “corporate welfare” would place first every year, Wudrick said. But Bombardier was handed a lifetime achievement award simply for being the most egregious offender. According to CTF’s calculations, the transport firm has taken $3.8 billion in government handouts since 1966. And, just as the CTF was holding its Wednesday awards ceremony in Ottawa, Bombardier was seeking another $1 billion from federal coffers.
Thunder Bay Biomass Plant (Nominee)
These days, instead of racking up gargantuan steakhouse bills, governments are more likely to waste money on ill-advised economic development schemes — particularly if it involves something trendy like green energy, the CTF says. Thus is the case of the former Thunder Bay Generating Station, a former coal plant that was converted to burn biomass. But due to a technical oversight, it can only burn imported biomass from Norway.
