Let’s send a message to Bombardier: Pay us back now!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Bombardier, the perpetual corporate welfare bum, just got a billion dollars from Quebec taxpayers to bail them out of their failing C-Series jet.

But they’re so bad at running their company, that wasn’t enough.

So Bombardier has wrung another $372 million out of Ottawa.

Meanwhile they’re laying off Canadian employees by the thousand, but building whole new plants in Mexico.

Then after Bombardier executives got all the money and fired all the Canadians, they gave themselves a huge bonus. With our money.

Total compensation for their top five executives and board chairman Pierre Beaudoin was US$32.6 million in 2016, up from US$21.9 million the year before.

In other words: They got 50 per cent bonuses.

Enough is enough. This is your money.

Sign our petition at BombardierPayUsBack.com.

We’ll deliver this petition to Pierre Beaudoin, Bombardier’s chairman.

Tell these hobos the corporate welfare ends now.

@Jack Carter…what I am suggesting is that political contribution rules created by the liberals based on the false assumption that the tories were carrying water for the corporations led to the liberals being defunded …not the tories…why would businessmen invest in influence in a party not in power?…so they came up with the taxpayer subsidy scam…which the tories eliminated…and the leftists howled…

And what else I am saying is that in the present tory fund raising is squeeky clean but liberal fund raising is pay for play.

In the 26 years I worked for the government liberal pork barreling and chrony favouritism cost the tax payer dearly….the tories tried to clean it up but it is difficult when the bureaucracy arrays itself against the new policies.

Jack Carter…I do not need to explain myself to you…the fact that you support the liberals means that you sold your soul….I had the Faust interview on several occassions…each time I refused the offer.

“Respect is when you know that I know that you know that I know” …Shuang-tzu

Jack Carter asked, "Are you married? Why do you keep avoiding my question? "

Your obsession with whether I am married or not is rather creepy. It is none of your business my marital status.

You have the only answer I am going to give you on the subject.

By the way Jack, you really must learn to differentiate between “delusional” and “reality” if you are going to survive in the coming years without getting your nose seriously “bloodied” in your own life in those years…

Andy Neimers,

You are either delusional about conservatives in Canadian history or you are simply giving them a pass on certain things that may not have personally bothered you.

Jack Carter… I don’t know about “countless examples” but you could easily write a PhD thesis about how the Liberals have perfected the art of corruption… I’m guessing I’m a bit older than you, but I can remember back to Expo ‘67 in Montreal and the Liberal buddies contracting scandals to get it built… Nothing has changed since then, except they’re more blatant about it now, and even less shameless….

Glenn Craig,

Are you suggesting in Canada’s entire history, there hasn’t been countless examples of conservative corruption?

When I was younger the political money pit in Nova Scotia was Sysco..the Sydney Steel Corporation. It would have been much cheaper to give every employee a six figure (and that was serious money back then) buyout . Now that lives on in the Veterans Affairs district office…reopened more as an apeasement to the union that supported Trudeau than to any actual underserved need of veterans.

Corruption thy name is LIBERAL.

Peter Netterville,

Are you married? Why do you keep avoiding my question?

I am only Jack Carter. Feel free to confirm that with The Rebel admin – they will tell you that I am not Jay Kelly or anyone else.

Drew Wakariuk,

No, that wasn’t me. You do know that there is more than one person on here providing an opposing view right? It’s not one person who uses a ton of different user names.
commented 2017-04-02 13:00:55 -0400
I sign most of the petitions that The Rebel starts, but this one is probably pointless. Justine “the feminist” Trudeau loves to give our money to his pet crony capitalist corporations in return for personal favors so he won’t pay attention to the petition, and certainly Bombardier will not pay attention to it, even if they acknowledge its existence.

It is too bad that these left wing/socialist trolls cannot post comments using their real name, but judging by the utter brain dead claptrap that they say, it is no wonder why they use pseudonyms.
commented 2017-04-02 12:48:25 -0400
Drew, Jay Kelly is one of Jack Carter’s more unstable personalities, that and Jimmy Da Silva.

Canada’s future . . . Taxpayer funded “industry” . . . lol

How much kick back did trudeau receive out of this?

I just pray that Maritimes, Quebec, Ontario and lower mainland BC get it and will, just once, stop picking a Trulydumb to run the show. He has destroyed our diverse and beautiful country. He is way to stupid for such an important job. A snowboard and drama teacher has nothing (obviously) to offer this nation. Gerald Butts is actually the PM with Jt as the pretty face. Butts is an eco warrior who has not presented a resume either. Face it . . . . we were scammed. Taqiya worked on many Canadians.

I hope and pray for the day some dimwit Quebec politician plays the “independence vote” card again, hoping to extract more bribes from the rest of Canada… Please!… Oh Please!….Just try it Froggies!…

I hope this becomes an issue at the next election.

Jack Carter is it not usually liberals who get upset about corporate welfare? They cannot pick and choose.
commented 2017-04-02 02:26:42 -0400
Jack Carter i am sure that is what they will tell everyone , even the people they let go.
And say hello to Jay Kelly, hard to tell if he is for or against things most of the time.
commented 2017-04-02 01:37:50 -0400
Jay Kelly,

What are you talking about?
commented 2017-04-02 01:06:50 -0400
To give the Liberals credit….It’s a good thing they lied about scraping GST and Free Trade

Hey, Jack: the major corporations in Canada and North America provide jobs for most of us.

If you want to object to capitalism in all its forms go ahead; but know that most workers will be against you.

You want state socialism? Me, I go for capitalism.

Wow…penson got a weekend pass. However it is obvious by the post, the treatment is not working.
commented 2017-04-01 22:29:33 -0400
I am sure Bombardier’s response to “The Rebel” will be: go fuck yourself.

At Daryl Herman….Don’t back down Brother..

Hard to back down – when I’m already at the bottom of the hole. – just hope those hoping to help me aren’t less elevated than my position. The bastards have put many of us in that last position. I often wonder what OSHA regs they work under???

Be assured – their blood will flow – should they even think of causing ours to flow! This ain’t gonna end well for barbarism!! …or for TruDope & his gang of lunatic Zombies.

The liberal agenda is to bankrupt Canada. This bombardier crime points to it, totally useless squandering of our money. There are plenty of other indications: bringing in hundreds of thousands of migrants from the middle east who have, for the most part, no intention to work and are draining our health care and welfare/disability systems; not using our own oil but paying millions or billions to the arabs yearly for theirs; constantly raising minimum wages that many employers can’t afford to pay so they will leave Canada and head south to Mexico for cheap labour and/or they are raising the cost of their products making it hard for people to afford them; in Ontario, the witch, Wynne has raised hydro fees that hardly nobody can afford and the same with businesses who will also leave and go elsewhere and much more all across Canada. And the purpose of that? Go and ask George Soros and the UN (and maybe Erdogen, the Turkish Hitler who calls everybody in Europe Nazis), the real rulers of Canada. Maybe it’s about breaking Canada so they can step in and rule with their communism. M103 is only the beginning of the fascist rules in store for Canada (have to keep getting this out there, while there’s still time.)
