Political pressure hasn’t motivated Bombardier to live up to its commitments. Bad press has failed to get them to deliver. Lawsuits haven’t moved them give a damn. Perhaps some good old, street-level, in-your-face shaming might help? It certainly couldn’t hurt.
Toronto’s Transit Commission routinely wraps its vehicles, including streetcars, with advertising. Perhaps, it’s time for a little advertising of its own. Would shameful wraps help remind Bombardier (and the federal government that keeps shovelling millions of dollars into its greedy maw) that it’s a complete, unequivocal, unmitigated failure when it comes to train building?
What say you?
