Ottawa won’t back Canadian-built Mars rover, CBC

“The federal government has turned down a request by Canada’s space industry to support a contract that would have allowed thecompanies to build the European Space Agency’s Mars surface rover, CBC News has learned. The decision stunned the companies and has left the ESA scrambling to find a new partner, as no European firm is adequately prepared to match the technical abilities of Canadian firms to build its ExoMars rover.”
