"Given Québec's major role in the Canadian aerospace industry, we would like to assure the Canadian government of our support, as a partner, in the follow-up to this report," said Suzanne Benoît, President of Aéro Montréal.
As a strategic think tank, Aéro Montréal would like to congratulate the Honourable David Emerson for his contribution to the development of our industry.
