Canadian Tech Industry's Mixed Reactions to Amazon's HQ2

05 Apr 2023  |  The Epoch Times
The article discusses the varied reactions within the Canadian tech industry to Amazon's search for a location for its second headquarters, HQ2. While Canadian cities are eager to bid, with potential economic benefits such as job creation and investment, there are concerns about the impact on local businesses, the tech ecosystem, and whether the investment will truly benefit the Canadian economy. Doina Oncel of Socially Strategic and hErVOLUTION raises questions about the investment in an American company over Canadian ones. The Information Technology Association of Canada sees potential benefits for local tech graduates. Everett Findlay of Arrowonics expresses caution over the potential costs and tradeoffs. Ontario's head of the Amazon bid, Ed Clark, states that the province won't offer billions in incentives, but the details remain unclear. Toronto Global, responsible for attracting international investment, deems it premature to comment on the impact on startups and the extent of the bid.

The article discusses the issue of flooding in Quebec and the government's response to move residents out of flood-prone areas. It highlights the Quebec government's policy to demolish flooded homes and prohibit rebuilding if there's a high risk of future flooding within 20 years, offering up to $250,000 for relocation. The article also covers the introduction of overland flood insurance by companies like Desjardins and Intact, but notes the skepticism regarding its affordability due to high premiums and deductibles. CAA-Qu├ębec is mentioned as planning to offer a policy by 2018. The journalist questions the logic of building homes in known flood zones and suggests that the Quebec approach may become a model for the rest of Canada.
