Bombardier is in court in Toronto today asking a judge to block Metrolinx from cancelling a $770 million contract for light rail vehicles.
Metrolinx says Bombardier has repeatedly failed to deliver a prototype for the Eglinton Crosstown Line on time and says it believes Bombardier’s injunction is merely a tactic to tie up the matter in litigation to make sure that no other supplier can deliver the vehicles on time

At the heart of the dispute is the question of whether a test vehicle for the new lines has been delivered according to the agreement.  The contract for 182 vehicles includes those meant to carry passengers on the new 5 billion transit line which is  scheduled to open in 2021.

Bombardier maintains it is capable of delivering all of the vehicles on-time and that cancelling the contract would result in hundreds of lost jobs.
