Being Canadian means a lot of things but it may not always mean knowledge of an airplane, even if it's built in Montreal!.... I haven't flown the CRJ. Does it bring the throttle back, (to possibly break a thumb!), if a reverser deploys? Anyone? I think many would be interested in knowing this... Today 16:40
Yes the CRJ has a TL retarder, that with significant force "slams" the TL to idle should a thrust reverser deploy.

CRJ 200 FCOM R58

An autoretarding thrust lever mechanism makes sure that the thrust levers are at idle whenever the thrust reverser assemblies are in transit. In flight, should a thrust reverser inadvertently deploy, the autoretarding mechanism will automatically retard the affected engine thrust lever to IDLE to minimize asymmetric thrust.
