Montreal-based Bombardier says it didn't lobby the Harper government to keep a Russian executive off Canada's list of sanctioned people with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Bombardier says it did discuss Russia and other foreign policy issues in meetings with the government, but it didn't discuss specific individuals.
Bombardier says it remains in negotiations on a multi-billion deal that would see the company sell more than 100 of its Q-400 turboprop civilian aircraft to Russia.
Bombardier was reacting to opposition questions in the House of Commons yesterday over a decision not to impose sanctions two Russians with connections to Canadian companies.
One of the men heads a company in negotiations with Bombardier.
Ottawa has imposed sanctions on several dozen people with ties to Putin, as part of a broader package imposed by Western countries over the crisis in Ukraine.
