POLL — Canadians (even in Quebec) say: Cut off Bombardier’s corporate welfare

Brian LilleyArchive

Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to commission a poll to learn how Canadians really feel about Bombardier getting billion dollar government bailouts.

Bombardier is a great Canadian company, but they've become addicted to corporate welfare and it's time for an intervention.

According to our scientific poll (see below) most Canadians agree.

No matter what their age, political affiliation or province, most say they don't approve of these handouts.

If you agree but still haven't signed our petition yet, VISIT StopBackingBombardier.ca and let your voice be heard.

Let's give the Trudeau government even more evidence that Canadians want to cut off the billion-dollar gifts, especially since — as I prove in my new video — they won't go towards creating more jobs.

Quebec believes that the rest of Canada is there to support it. Baby Doc even said as much. As he put it, “Canada belongs to Quebec.” Bombardier is an internationally known company, and the rest of the nation is responsible to make certain that shareholders get their due, or at least considered so by the Liberals. Of course Baby Doc wants to give it at least a billion dollars of taxpayer money. Well, actually one billion dollars of borrowed money that the taxpayers are on the hook for.

The imagined ills and crimes of the past against Quebec, which was really the errors made by Quebec’s own political class, are expected to be repaid forever. As the PQ stated, no fracking until Quebec separates. 17 trillion cubic meters of natural gas just sitting there.because if fracked, Quebec would have to pay for transfer payments.

I’m surprised that Baby Doc isn’t bailing out or backing companies in other countries. After all, its 2016.

A year ago Stephen Harper’s government left with a $7,5 billion surplus. We are at a minimum $30 billion in the hole.for this year alone. That is a $37.5 billion difference caused by spending, spending, giving away money, and spending. Baby Doc obviously still believes that budgets balance themselves.

This platinum card spending spree is for only one year. Imagine, he has three more to go.

Has any of this unrestricted spending actually helped our economy? Uh… no. But every hundred million or multiple billions Baby Doc gives away and not spends on Canadians or in Canada is just another inch toward his dream of a seat at the UN Security Council.

Missing Harper?

I just thought of something. Baby Doc’s numbered trusts and investments which are supposed to be blind, are they invested in Bombardier?

“What’s with all these schmoos peddling their million dollar a month job on this website. Ezra, you should be blocking these people, what is their purpose here.”

their purpose is “free speech for all”

We may not agree with what they say but everybody should have the right to be heard.

Bombardier has one Chrietens Son In Law as a top director. When Chreiten was in power, they got billions upon billions of government contracts. So much they built 2 new facilities, one in Mexico and the other in China. Yes Liberals are that stupid and that is why the country is going to hell.

Does Brian have to keep grovelling for money to pay for another stupid poll?

Trudeau & Bains are so concerned about Bombardier, that sector being very important to our economy & hands them billions, well how important are they if you have to keep them funded. Bombardier has many contracts in the works so why are they always at the trough, sounds like their finances are not managed well & maybe that should be looked into. Now, why is the oil & gas industry not as equally important to Trudeau & he does not need to fork anything over, yet again it’s all about the east, especially Kebek & to hell with the west.

Bombardier is the Air Canada of the 90s . . . endless subsidies with little or no benefit to the taxpayer.
Back in the day the Lieberal Govt killed Canadian Airlines by subsidizing their competition . . .
long past time these Socialists stopped picking winners and losers. Let the Free Market free !

Without public subsidy Quebec would have no world class manufacturing – particularly in aerospace – which is what Bombardier was trying to do expanding into the US and lost their shirt doing it due to inadequate tech and business savvy – now the too-big-to-fail Liberal party donor wants bailouts for its corporate inabilities/blunders
