As I considered starting a ML system, Nikon, my dslr system, left Brazil. I waited a bit, but more and more felt it would make sense to go with either Canon or Sony, as both had good presence in the country, Sony a major player in cameras, video, TV sets, games, etc.

They have just announced they are moving out, including closing a plant that makes TV sets in Manaus, a free-commerce zone.

Brazil’s economic and political situation is a total shame, but we are not the only such country in the Americas, and I include NA in that list.

Anyway, practical issue, it seems it’ll be Canon. Not nice not to have choices.

If all those other companies are pulling out, I wouldn't count on Canon not following them eventually. Unfortunate situation all around.
