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.

 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.
