"Bombardier does not currently build light rail in North America. Establishing a plant in Hamilton would position them to meet domestic content requirements for the TTC order as well as other Canadian projects." - Jonathon

They have a barely used facility in Kingston that would be capable of producing light rail, they built the Vegas Monorail there, they also have a facility in La Pocatiere, QC that builds subways and the Thunder Bay facility builds the bi-levels and street cars. Opening another facility in Hamilton would be unlikely... The best you can probably hope for is an initially temporary assembly facility opening (if stipulated in the sales contract) and then you hope the facility is efficient and enough orders within reasonable distance come in to warrant keeping it open.
