    Unlike the dumb asses in the US who lent out billions, Canada wants a better deal and more dough. It also wants assurances that Fiat will not dump Chrysler after a few years. Fiat has one car in production and will bring more on line.

    the Canucks aren't that stupid, they know that the US got screwed, all the money that they "paid back" was nothing more than a shell game

    According to an AP article, Canada has more flexibility than the United States with regards to the sale of shares.

    I bet it's in no small part that the Canadian Corporate Tax rate averages around 16.5%. In comparison, ours more then doubles it at 34.6%

    Gives businesses a strong incentive to develop there, instead of here.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Unlike with the shares owed by the U.S. government, the company has no right to compel the Canadian government to sell.

    Flaherty said Ottawa will wait to see how the stock transfer process unfolds in the United States before deciding whether Canada will also sell its shares
    Seems they are paying attention.

    Unlike the US who will sell out for peanuts, Canada wants a better deal plus wants assurance that those 9000 jobs will not go bye bye. We should learn from the Canadians. Instead, we have a bunch of morons that give away the farm here.

    Hell, we pay farmers not to grow crops.
