Letter from Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline:

TORONTO, Jan. 9 /CNW/ - Prime Minister Harper's comments (Friday) mark the latest round in what has become a Groundhog Day cycle of myths and misrepresentation of Emirates airline. I challenge Prime Minister Harper or any member of his government to produce one shred of evidence to support the false accusations which are repeatedly reported as fact by the Canadian media.

We have stated on many occasions that Emirates is not subsidised in any way, shape or form by the Dubai government: it never has been and never will be. Our financial statements audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the world's largest accounting firm, confirm that there is no evidence of subsidisation whatsoever. These accounts have been made freely available to the public through Emirates' website (www.emirates.com) and they clearly demonstrate that we do not receive any direct or indirect subsidies.

Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline
