Silent Partners: Taxpayers and the Bankrolling of Bombardier
Silent Partners: Taxpayers and the Bankrolling of Bombardier is the shocking account of how the Canadian taxpayer unwittingly bankrolled the rise and fall of the Bombardier empire.Bombardiers improbable rise from snowmobile manufacturer in backwoods Quebec to the worlds largest producer of rail and mass transit equipment and the third-largest aircraft manufacturer has been a source of national pride, especially in Quebec. Selling 94 per cent of its trains, planes, snowmobiles and watercraft outside the country, and with sales of $24 billion, and 75,000 employees in 24 countries, Bombardier had become a global powerhouse. But this dazzling growth masked a host of problems.
