How do you convince the Federal Government to give you a billion dollars of taxpayers’ money?
Bombardier has already received more than $2.2B in direct government aid over the years, already gets favourable financing provided through the government backed Export Development Canada, and openly say in their own quarterly filings they’d like to use some of that money to provide dividends to shareholders.
So how do they keep getting more?
Fortunately in Canada we have a registry for lobbyists.
Watch as I show you what I found when I dug into that registry a bit.
