Did I hear that right??

    Heard on CBC's World at 6, 2009/07/27, regarding the sale of part of Nortel to Swedish based Ericsson:

      "Ericsson will be approaching the Canadian government for what will likely be a multi-billion dollar loan to complete the deal. This, despite earning a profit of nearly 800 million dollars in just the last 3 months of 2008."

    Excuse me? A foreign company wants to buy taxpayer-funded Canadian technology and they want the Canadian government to foot the bill.

    Are we Canadians stupid or what?
