Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland's comment that Ottawa is "reviewing current military procurement that relates to Boeing" appears to be a hint that the government would revisit its purchase of Super Hornets.

Canada's government is threatening to "review" its defense contracts with Boeing Co., which include a planned purchase of Super Hornet fighter jets, in response to the US company's trade challenge against rival Bombardier Inc. At that price, the Canadian purchase would be worth $1.26 billion.

"We strongly disagree with the U.S. Department of Commerce's decision".

Canada unveiled plans to buy the Super Hornets last November as a stop-gap measure while it prepared an open five-year competition to replace its ageing fleet of 77 Boeing CF-18 fighter jets. Boeing said it would respond later in the day.Boeing's defense unit is called Defense, Space & Security.

La Constituyente es peligrosa para la democracia venezolana — Conferencia Episcopal
Dijo que la Iglesia "no es un partido político, y no le corresponde participar en el proceso constituyente, simplemente ellos han escuchado las motivaciones que ha tenido el presidente para convocar a esta Asamblea Nacional Constituyente ".

Freeland said Boeing's petition is "clearly aimed at blocking Bombardier's new aircraft, the CSeries aircraft, from entering the US market".

He says that while the government has a responsibility to Canada's men and women in uniform, it will always defend Canadian companies and workers. Sao Paolo-based Embraer is a fierce rival of Bombardier's. But Bombardier won a 75-plane order for the CSeries from US -based Delta Air Lines in 2016.

If Boeing did indeed gamble that it could challenge Bombardier while sealing an order for fighter jets, the costs could be significant, analysts said.

If the ITC determines there is a threat of injury to the US industry, preliminary countervailing duties could be announced in July, followed in October by preliminary anti-dumping duties, unless the deadlines are extended.

King Charles III, BBC Two
Yes: King Charles III, as befits its Shakespearean title (and blank-verse dialogue), features characters both living and dead. Pigott-Smith, who sadly died suddenly at the age of 70 last month - is absolutely brilliant in his role as Charles.

Boeing is calling for countervailing duties of 79.41 per cent and anti-dumping charges of 79.82 per cent. The aerospace giant has also taken the Caisse to task over a credit facility for Bombardier in 2009, as well as the pension fund's acquisition of a 30 per cent stake in the company's rail division.

Bombardier representatives countered that their planes never competed with Boeing in a sale to Delta - which the American rival describes as a seminal moment. Boeing said Bombardier has received more than US$3 billion in government subsidies so far that have allowed Bombardier to engage in "predatory pricing".

He said Boeing could lose $10 billion (7.67 billion pounds) to $20 billion in military sales to Canada, encompassing order for jets, helicopters and maritime surveillance planes. Bombardier revenues previous year were US$16.3 billion, including US$9.9 billion from aerospace activities.
