Aug 20 (Reuters) - Air Canada is studying Bombardier Inc's new CSeries airplane carefully, and plans to decide which narrow-body jets to purchase by the end of this year, the airline's chief executive said on Tuesday.

"It's a big, big decision, because it's more than 100 airplanes total," Calin Rovinescu told reporters at the opening of a new operations center.

Posting this here, because no one can manage to post Comments on the “stories” just out at the Globe and Mail and Montreal Gazette – the latter unsigned and a rehashing of analyst comments from three weeks ago! – although we normally have no trouble posting and commenting there.

Longs in Bombardier – now over 97.5 percent of those in the stock(s) – Canadian and US – have waited five long years for the first launch of the C-series, due later this week.

But rather than allow us to enjoy this triumph – and it is a triumph, for Canada and the Canadian people, as well as for Bombardier and those who have supported it – the less than 3 percent of the stock which is Short are coddled by corrupt Market Makers to the most disgraceful extent I have ever seen in these corrupt Markets – EVER – counting the dark days of 2008 and 2009.

There is NO excuse for this kind of behavior now.

The analyst quoted in the one-quotee story in the Globe and Mail today is among those who have shamelessly Pairs Traded Bombardier negatively against Embraer for over two years. Judging by his comments, he refuses to stop doing so – or his inteests refuse – despite Embraer having a horrid earnings report – a loss report, in fact – while Bombardier had a solid, Bullish report a couple of weeks ago.

But that’s besides the point. Some Ninnies want top support ERJ or Boeing or Airbus, it is their prerogative.

But trying to ruin Bombardier’s incredible triumph with the C-series launch, for the company, its stocks, and its shareholders – not acceptable. Dirty and filthy and malicious and childish and NOT ACCEPTABLE.
