CORRECTED-(OFFICIAL) -Canada illegally subsidized Bombardier - Embraer

(Corrects to remove Embraer support of Brazil’s request for WTO action after statement by Embraer)

RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer said on Friday that the U.S. Department of Commerce has shown that the Canadian government “heavily and illegally subsidized” Bombardier and its C Series aircraft, allowing the company to survive and distorting the aviation industry.

The statement came just after Bombardier won an unexpected trade victory against U.S. planemaker Boeing Co when a U.S. agency rejected imposing hefty duties on sales of Bombardier’s new CSeries jet to American carriers. (Reporting by Alexandra Alper; Editing by Leslie Adler)
