Prime Minister Stephen Harper wants Research In Motion Ltd. to remain a Canadian company. But the BlackBerry maker’s chief executive officer thinks the government would make an exception for the right foreign investment.
Thorsten Heins, CEO of RIM, told the Globe and Mail he isn’t bothered by the government’s repeated comments encouraging the company to stay and grow within Canada. “I have never ever been hamstrung by them, or in any way been pushed back by them,” he said.
