Mr. Speaker, the Quebec giant, Bombardier, has just snagged another major railway contract in the Netherlands.
This contract worth $660 million provides for the delivery of 13 four-car double-deck EMUs and 12 six-car EMUs.
Bombardier is a one of our companies that has made an international name for itself. Its expertise in the area of transportation is its vocation, and is a source of pride for all of Canada.
Bombardier has long understood that the key to economic success is to occupy much of the market and be based in an economic and a political entity such as Canada.
We congratulate Bombardier on this latest success and encourage them to continue their growth worldwide. Indeed, Bombardier is a real jewel of our economy and we are all very proud of it.
