Canadian Government Industry Minister James Moore took some time to talk to Reuters yesterday about what he called BlackBerry’s current situation. He stated that it was “unfortunate” that BlackBerrys new Q10 and Z10 phones have not taken off. He went on to say that:
"I know that they’re facing their challenges and they’re adjusting their firm internally in the way that best suits their interests," he said. "And all I can say is, we wish them well, and we’re keeping a close eye on the situation."
On top of that he was asked if the government wanted BlackBerry to stay Canadian in terms of foreign bids. To that he vaguely replied that:
"We want them to do well, keep employing Canadians, keeping putting out innovative technologies and platforms, and we’re paying close attention."
In other words they have their eye on it and have not made any public decisions yet.
