Essentially the Canadian business elite always wanted to set up protected markets where they could collect easy rent instead of competing on the world stage.
I see these same comments each time and it kind of burns me. Nortel went to conquer much of the world. Under that Canadian management. Then they passed their zenith and failed, like countless companies before. RIM conquered much of the world. Under that Canadian management. Then they passed their zenith and failed, like countless companies before.
To see the same boring comments every time that imagines that only the latter part happened -- completely ignoring the events that led to that even being possible -- someone showing the chip on their shoulder (e.g. someone didn't listen to their ideas. Damn Canadian management!)...it's just such garbage analysis. It is so shallow and instantly discardable.
