Canada Should Buy Australia's Old Fighter Jets, Retired Generals Say

  Canada Should Buy Australia's Old Fighter Jets, Retired Generals Say Three retired air force generals say buying used fighter jets from Australia is a much better plan for Canada than purchasing new Super Hornets from Boeing. Tom Lawson, Andre Deschamps and Kenneth Pennie say Australia's old F-18s will need modifications to operate alongside Canada's CF-18s, but that would cost a lot less than brand-new Super Hornets.

Aerospace workers will hold a rally outside the U.S. consulate in Montreal to protest Boeing’s decision to file a trade complaint against Bombardier.

Boeing alleges that the Canadian and Quebec governments heavily subsidize Bombardier, allowing it to sell its C-Series civilian aircraft in the U.S. at below market prices. Bombardier sold the aircraft to Delta Airlines. Boeing convinced the U.S. Commerce Department and International Trade Commission to launch an investigation into Bombardier.

In response, Canada broke off talks with Boeing on a proposed purchase of 18 Super Hornets for the RCAF.

“The International Association of Machinists (IAM) helped build the infrastructure of the Quebec Aerospace industry, we built it and we will protect it,” IAM Quebec Coordinator Dave Chartrand said in a statement.

Tribute planned in Montreal for Leonard Cohen

  Tribute planned in Montreal for Leonard Cohen Adam Cohen, the son of singer Leonard Cohen, said Monday his father would likely want nothing to do with the memorial concert planned to mark the first anniversary of the music legend's death. Cohen was a private man and considered himself far less important in the world than he actually was, Adam Cohen said in an interview.

A peaceful demonstration has been organized against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on later this week. The teachers’ union has planned its protest for Wednesday , a day before Ms. DeVos makes her appearance to make her speech.

“Boeing’s arguments are hollow,” added Chartrand. “Boeing did not even bid on the Delta contract and the C-Series poses no threat to Boeing’s 737 because it’s not in the same size class.”

The IAM is the largest union in Canadian aerospace with more than 6,000 members employed by Bombardier at plants in Montreal and surrounding area. The IAM is also the largest union at Boeing.

 “Let’s make this very clear, this is a court battle between two corporations,” added IAM Canadian General Vice President Stan Pickthall. “Our members will be out there to protect their jobs and defend the aerospace industry in Canada. In the context of the NAFTA talks underway, we must protect this industry and the livelihood of our members in Montréal and across the country.” 

Boeing refusing to blink in dispute with Bombardier despite Liberal threats

  Boeing refusing to blink in dispute with Bombardier despite Liberal threats Boeing Co. has no plans to back down in its trade dispute with Canadian rival Bombardier — a high-stakes, cross-border conflict that the U.S. transportation giant says could have long-term ramifications for the future of the entire aerospace sector.The potential consequences of the Boeing-Bombardier standoff extend beyond any single deal — especially for Boeing itself, said Marc Allen, president of Boeing's international division.

 Marc Allen, Boeing’s president of international business, said the company took its action to ensure a level playing field in the industry. He said Boeing believes that global trade only works if everyone plays by the same rules. That wasn’t the case for Bombardier, he added.

Boeing argues that the Super Hornet deal should not be connected to a commercial trade dispute.

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Theresa May asked U.S. President Donald Trump to intervene in the dispute. May made the request Sept. 5 in a phone conversation with Trump. May is concerned about the impact on jobs at Bombardier’s plant in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

“Our priority is to encourage Boeing to drop its case and seek a negotiated settlement with Bombardier,” the U.K. Department for Business said in statement. “This is a commercial matter but the U.K. government is working tirelessly to safeguard Bombardier’s operations and its highly skilled workers in Belfast.”

Feds looking at alternatives to Super Hornets .
It once appeared the Liberal government would almost certainly buy Super Hornet fighter jets from U.S. aerospace giant Boeing Co. — but it's now clear that other options are on the table. Aside from the Super Hornets, the government are also pondering used jets and could even end up extending the lives of Canada's CF-18s as its dispute with Boeing continues to escalate.
