Boeing had told lawmakers that Bombardier is dumping the airliners in the U.S. markets thanks to steep subsidies from the Canadian government.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland retaliated after the hearing by issuing a statement saying that the Canadian government was “reviewing current military procurement that relates to Boeing.”
