Burnaby home to new Bombardier plant

Bombardier Inc. will build a manufacturing plant in the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby to make cars for the area's SkyTrain system.

The plant already has an order to build 50 cars and will create an estimated 900 jobs.

Under the deal with British Columbia's government, Bombardier will also invest $175 million in B.C. businesses that will provide components for the cars, including communications, safety monitoring equipment and transit power systems.
