To be honest know. Bombardier as a whole has been in trouble for quite a while. They also make Street Cars and are behind the eight ball on delivery. So they needed to do something to bring in cash. Selling the Q-400 is probably the best option. Going to put 5000 workers out of work. They have been slowly down sizing the past few years.

Boy, do I feel for those workers. What sort of rights/protections do they have under Canadian law, if any?

There will be severance for them but after that nothing. There is no real recourse for them.

I feel for them. I was hoping that perhaps Canada had a better system in place than America for this sort of situation. Sadly, this does not appear to be the case.
