Is it always all about Bombardier?

I said, a few days ago, that I thought it was time that Canadian feminists took another, long, hard look at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who I characterized as a phoney, photo-op feminist.

But is there another reason that the Trudeau regime is silent on Iran? Is it because, as the (Iranian) Financial Tribune reports, “Canada will provide $100 million in finance for a deal between Montreal-based multinational aerospace and transportation company, Bombardier Inc., and Iran’s Qeshm Free Zone Organization for purchasing 10 passenger planes, the FTZ’s chief executive, Hamidreza Momeni, has said … [and] … “Our talks with Canada’s Bombardier are almost final,” he was quoted as saying by Iran’s Tinn News on Tuesday … [and, further] … Momeni said the $100-million finance will cover 80% of the deal, which entails the supply of the 104-seat planes.

… so, perhaps, Bombardier and its creditors, rather than Airbus Industries, will see some profits.

Is this (a Bombardier contract) why Canada’s official government response to the ongoing protests in Iran has been so muted?
