Not heading to court!

By Moderator, 20 December 2023

In what could be seen as a lovey Christmas present to the federal government,
Bombardier has announced that it will not contest the decision to replace the
Canada’s patrol planes with Boeing's P-8A Poseidon aircraft. Despite being
‘deeply disappointed’ by the government decision, it won’t sue the government.
The government announced in November that it would buy Boeing’s P-8A
surveillance planes from the United States in a sole-source deal to phase out
Canada's CP-140 Auroras. In the announcement, the Minister of Defence said
the P-8A meets all the needs of the Air Force and presents the only choice
available – key word being available – as Bombardier's proposed aircraft would
not be ready until at least the early 2030s.
