Saw a news headline about this yesterday. Bombardier was (one of?) the losing bidder(s). I would think that VIA, as a government corporation, would have been under some political pressure to "buy Canadian," so I think it's interesting that they chose Siemens instead of Bombardier.

A few minutes later, Allen added...

I should have read through the article you linked before posting! It's "one of": Talgo and Stadler were also short-listed bidders.
(Thank you for posting it!)
