Bombardier issued the following statement today regarding the favourable ruling by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on its motion to prevent the unjustified termination of its contract with Metrolinx:
We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling. The decision confirms our belief that Metrolinx acted inappropriately in seeking to avoid the dispute resolution provisions of the contract.
The hundreds of Bombardier Transportation employees in Ontario are committed to the success of the light rail expansion projects, and we are on track to deliver high quality, state-of-the-art vehicles on time to support the Eglinton Crosstown expansion.
It is unfortunate that Bombardier had to resort to the Courts to resolve this matter, and it is our hope that today’s ruling will now allow the parties to focus on delivering the light rail expansion projects on time and on budget.
We are eager to sit down with Metrolinx to find a clear path forward; one that delivers value to all parties: Bombardier, Metrolinx and the people of Ontario.
Ultimately, we are all focused on the same goal – advancing the projects and ensuring that the people of the GTHA have the most efficient, comfortable and reliable transit system in the world.
