Government Operations committee  When we're talking to government about program and policy development, we always try to say to them that small and medium-sized companies are different than large companies.

Transport committee  I think you're adding to the diversity of the industry.

Transport committee  I don't know that I can answer that for you. I haven't been told that this is a fact. I have heard that there's a possibility that the C Series may be attached to it in some way. It's the same with the centres of excellence. The sale of the aircraft, and having major carriers suc

International Trade committee  You enter into bilateral agreements for two reasons, really. One is if there is somebody who currently has an agreement, then you're levelling the playing field for yourself.
