Liberal Government Says Only Quebec Shipyard Qualifies For Icebreaker Construction, Ontario Shipyard Snubbed

Ontario’s Heddle Shipyards has been denied even a part of the icebreaker fleet work, which will all go to Quebec’s Davie Shipyards.

Quebec’s Davie shipyards are the only shipyards that qualified for the Liberals icebreaker procurement program says the federal government.

As a result, all the work on the new icebreaker fleet will go the Quebec company.

Ontario’s Heddle Shipyards was totally snubbed, and won’t even be granted a portion of the work.

Heddle had previously raised concerns that the process was rigged by the Liberal government in favour of the Quebec company from the beginning.

Davie Shipyards celebrated the federal decision: “Today’s historic announcement marks the beginning of a multi-generational program which will span the next three decades and sustain Davie’s position as a global leader in the delivery of specialist, mission-critical ships. We thank the prime minister and his government for delivering on their commitment to refresh the shipbuilding strategy and confirming Davie as a key strategic partner.”

Heddle also commented, expression their disappointment:

“We’re disappointed with the government’s decision and we’re reviewing all of our options with respect to the third-shipyard initiative. We have the facilities and the capacity required to support the government of Canada and so we’ll continue to explore options for how we can provide solutions to the government on this initiative and others related to the national shipbuilding strategy.”

The decision by the Liberals will certainly feed into growing division within Canada.

No surprises here. – Where is all the material & components coming from I wonder. China?

Sue

Shocking! Said no one..

Donald O'Kane

The Lieberal government rigged the decision making process from the beginning. There he goes again, favouring Quebec over other provinces. Now he is trying to pit Ontario and BC against Quebec, his agenda for destroying Canada. I wonder how much of a kick back Trudeau is getting for this – quid pro quo.

alan skelhorne

and the corruption continues

Patrick

Does that surprise anyone? Maybe the idiot Liberal Ontario voters will open their eyes. But I doubt they will, until Trudeau’s decisions negatively affect someone in their family.

Garlet Farlett

Liberal TORONTO voters, not much support outside of that…place.

Gary

Probably Lavalin is the only engineers that can engineer it also

Del

Lavalin is rumoured to be building Chinese nuclear power plants. Any bets Trudeau is subsidizing them or even gifting them?? Chinese engineers in Atomic Energy Canada and the Cabinet?

Joseph Scully

What is wrong with Saint John or Halifax?

Don Taylor

If this piece of favoritism isn’t enough to make you sick nothing will

NancyW

But will it stop them from voting for the lieberals?

Del

Well, Ontario, you voted for Trudeau, so you have no right to complain about car factories and now ship manufacturing being shut down with no meaningful comment from PM Freeland.

NancyW

Del when is the last time you were in Toronto? or the GTA? very small areas now have English speakers even n the stores ,not criticizing or being racist but it no longer feels like part of Canada as it used to, and many are moving out and more and more are sleeping on the streets etc.

Patrick

Most of Ontario did not vote for Trudeau. Only a few highly populated areas did. Mainly the Ottawa, Montreal and the Greater Toronto areas voted Liberal. Look at the 2019 map of the election results that show the high density of ridings in those areas. The big Liberal cities in Ontario are the reason we still have that idiot as Crime Minister. Please don’t brand the rest of us here for the idiotic choices of big city Liberals.

RDP

The 416, to be exact.

Brian Dougan

No surprise. “Quebecers are better.” J. Turdo.

Clive Edwards

Let’s also not forget Irving Shipyards in New Brunswick and Washington Marine Group (Seaspan) in North Vancouver. Burrard Ship Building was a going concern before they got shafted by a previous Liberal government.

Eleanor

As usual, corruption at its finest. I can’t believe anyone in their right mind would vote for this bunch of criminals.

Reader

This is simply Trudeau doing what he does best…engaging in favouritism. Perhaps the liberal voters in Ontario will now have a reason to reflect on why they voted him back into power.
