This company has relied on the Canadian taxpayer since it was founded. Government funding for anything is simply taxpayer dollars. Governments have no money.

The rest of us aren't smart enough to do this. I am an 80 year old Ontario resident.

There is not a single airplane manufacturer on the planet which is not heavily subsidised by governments: Boeing, Airbus, Embraer,... Ontario's DeHavilland was also supported by provincial and federal governments before being taken over. These industries with their well-paid work-forces and huge export markets are politically protected in the larger marketplace. The virtual monopolies of Boeing and Airbus allow them to dominate and force smaller companies into yielding their independence as with Bombardier and Embraer.
