Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is seeking some assurances from the federal government about aerospace jobs. Pallister is concerned about media reports that say the federal government is looking at buying new Super Hornet fighter jets from Boeing instead of the Lockheed-Martin F-35 planned by the former federal government. He says Manitoba companies have already planned for the F-35 purchase. (Pallister is also worried about a proposed law that changes the requirements for Air Canada maintenance jobs to be kept in Winnipeg. He says the change could result in some work bring shipped to other provinces.)
