Some of the reaction to the proposed US duties on Bombardiers CSeries

MONTREAL — The U.S. Department of Commerce has proposed a 219 per cent duty on Bombardier’s CSeries jets following a complaint filed by Boeing.Here’s some of the reaction:“This is clearly aimed at eliminating Bombardier’s C Series aircraft from the U.S. market.” — Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.——“The U.S. values its relationships with Canada, but even our closest allies must play by the rules.” — U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.——“The magnitude of the proposed duty is absurd and divorced from the reality about the financing of multibillion-dollar aircraft programs.” — Bombardier statement.——“Boeing has no American-made product to offer because it cancelled production of its only aircraft in this size range — the 717 — more than 10 years ago.” — Delta Air Lines statement.——“Subsidies enabled Bombardier to dump its product into the U.S. market, harming aerospace workers in the United States and throughout Boeing’s global supply chain.” — Boeing statement.
