Donald Savoie on RIM

Savoie was quoted in the Toronto Star on Monday wondering why no one questioned $40 million in federal grants that Blackberry-maker Research in Motion won from Ottawa for the Waterloo facility, but a recent $14 million provincial grant for a new Halifax centre drew the familiar charge of ‘pork-barrel’ politics.

I would go further. Why was their no Federal grants on the table for RIM in Halifax when there was for RIM in Ontario?


Lesson: Don’t piss off Ontario.
