I would really wish that the people that are so disapointed with Trudeau would post what would they expect him to do in regards to Oshawa closing.
In 2002, the only assembly line in Quebec (GM Boisbriand) was closed and the wounds took long to heal. It signaled the end of an epoch. The huge land area which is quite close to where I live has been replaced by a shopping center.

Problem is clear: sedans no longer sell.

Forget about your EV propaganda too: Bolt and Volt don't sell either.

People want SUV's and large vehicles and it is a worldwide phenomenon! I have posted prior on this regarding Ford which was well ahead of GM again.

Now we are getting to it. Ford didn't go bankrupt but, GM did. Both the U.S. government and Canada spent billions to keep alive that POS.

Now it is time for our PM to demand payback. If the need is to retool Oshawa to produce trucks or SUV's or even EV's (although no demand), then he should state to Barra that she needs to rethink her strategy or large monetary consequences will follow.

Not sure exactly what can be done against GM that will meet USCMA terms but, there must be a way to hurt them. However, for the PM to just say: deeply disappointed or too bad, it is stupid!

This may sound harsh to so-called polite Canadians (more akin to sheeps being fleeced) but, that is now the world in which we live in and we must fight for every inch.

I wouldn't be surprised if Trump comes up with something.
