(Boeing-Bombardier-Bowman) (Mba Note)

Manitoba's premier has joined Winnipeg's mayor in calling for cooler heads and less stormy rhetoric in the aerospace trade war between Boeing and Bombardier.

But Premier Brian Pallister's plea was immediately rebuffed by Quebec's Philippe Couillard (kwee-ARHD') at Bombardier's assembly plant north of Montreal.

Couillard says Ottawa must take a hard line against Boeing after the U-S Department of Commerce proposed a hefty 219 per cent duty on jets made by rival Bombardier.

Winnipeg is home to a Boeing manufacturing plant that employs 14-hundred people and is the third biggest aerospace centre in the country.

Pallister says the Canadian and U-S economies are intertwined and he's confident the two countries will weather the storm. (The Canadian Press)

He says the officers fired non-lethal beanbag rounds and also tried using a Taser on the suspect, but they didn't use their regular guns until the suspect fired at them.
