Ontario Government Files Notice of Intent to Terminate Bombardier Contract Worth Over $700M

Manufacturing giant says move is 'totally normal' part of contractual process

The provincial transit agency Metrolinx has filed a notice of intent to cancel a nearly three-quarter-billion dollar contract for Bombardier to supply light-rail vehicles for LRT lines under construction in Toronto.

"There have been some concerns about Bombardier's performance as there have been significant quality and manufacturing issues that, to-date, have not been resolved," Metrolinx spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins told CBC News.

"As a result, we have taken the next step available to us through our contract."

The move comes just months after Metrolinx ordered 125 new bi-level commuter railcars from Bombardier in a contract valued at $428 million.
