Perennial corporate welfare recipient Bombardier are threatening to move production and jobs to the U.S due to the high dollar.
Since they've received almost a billion dollars from Canadian taxpayers, we assume they'll pay it back in full before they dare move one job out of Canada.
Unfortunately, they've done this before. In October 2005, Bombardier announced it was building an assembly plant in Mexico that would displace 500 Canadian workers.
Question: Does using Canadian tax dollars to help create jobs in Mexico and the U.S sound like smart policy?
