Boeing refusing to blink in dispute with Bombardier despite Liberal threats
OTTAWA -- Boeing Co. has no plans to back down in its trade dispute with Canadian rival Bombardier -- a high-stakes, cross-border conflict that the U.S. transportation giant says could have long-term ramifications for the future of the entire aerospace sector.
The potential consequences of the Boeing-Bombardier standoff extend beyond any single deal -- especially for Boeing itself, said Marc Allen, president of Boeing's international division.
"In Canada, we face a situation with a competitor, an emerging competitor, that has, yes, long received government support -- but that just went beyond the pale in 2016," Allen said in an interview with The Canadian Press.
"The interim (fighter) procurement requires a trusted industry partner," Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said on May 31, in what amounted to the government's strongest public words on the dispute to date.
