Billions in Canadian Shipbuilding Contracts Insight Politics

February 4, 2011

According to a report from The Globe and Mail, Stephen Harper is poised to kick off the greatest round of government shipbuilding in Canada since the Second World War. Pegged at $35b, the sums involved easily dwarf the funds committed for the Conservatives' controversial plan to buy $9b worth of F-35 fighter jets from Lockheed Martin (LMT). The report said this will ultimately pit three regions of Canada against each other and force a difficult choice upon Harper. He'll have to decide which region to leave out in an election year: the East, the West or Quebec.
