Fuckhead Trudeau's Canada: GM to end automotive production in Oshawa
The century-old automotive plant in Oshawa is slated to have its last vehicle roll off the assembly line sometime this week, as General Motors (GM) pulls the plug on the long-standing production facility.

The closure will leave almost 2,600 workers without a job, something that the plant has been bracing for since GM announced the closure back in November 2018.

"This is a tough week," said Jerry Dias, the national president for Unifor, the union representing the company's hourly wage earners.

"The timing couldn't be worse. We're less than two weeks before Christmas."

The 22-hectare facility will be converted into a test track for autonomous and other advanced vehicles.

This comes after GM invested $170 million to transition the plant from manufacturing vehicles to stamping, sub-assembly and autonomous vehicle testing in May.

It would save 300 union jobs at the plant.

"It doesn't detract from the fact that this week thousands and thousands and thousands of workers will be losing their jobs," Dias said.

The Liberal government has been driving companies out of Canada for over a generation.

GM has to get out of Canada to free up money they will invest in communist China. Since they are basically a Chinese company, that is where all the money goes. Even the government bail out money was invested in communist China. Barry the Imposter seemed to believe that was a big boost to the American economy.

Canadians have to realize that Canada is a corporate-run de facto government and we (Canadians) have to bring about the change and the time is now before we are sold out to the one-world government. Ass-hole Trudeau is trying his hardest to get us there. The elections were a fraud so that he could stay in one more year to get the job done. New world order for 2022.

The automotive plant in Oshawa used to be a Canadian car company and was called the McLaughlin Motor Company before it was bought out by the American car company called General Motors.

regulations regulations regulations ...

it's an extremely painful and expensive process to design from scratch, develop and put a vehicle on the road that meets all the current regulations, which continue to be added to

the US Auto Mfg. did all that shit before there were any regulations
100 years ago anyone could cobble together a bunch of parts into an automobile and sell it to the general public

the current auto mfg. were already established when regulations started to come in

Re: Fuckhead Trudeau's Canada: GM to end automotive production in Oshawa
2 elephants in the room. 1, GM has NEVER been financially viable since the Obama-era restructuring. Instead of a traditional bankruptcy where they either fix their financial losses or get auctioned off, they left the bloated union contracts in place and kicked the can down the road. Folks holding stocks and bonds in the old GM were screwed and got nothing. Outside suppliers were screwed and got nothing.

This temporarily...10 years... allowed GM to linger on. But it never fixed the problem. Union members getting free lifetime healthcare, workers getting a combined pay package worth $80/hr, etc. It just isn't sustainable.

The other elephant is that people simply are not buying cars anymore. It's either an SUV or a pickup truck. 2019 was the last year Ford made cars. It's an industry-wide pattern.

Either way, since 2009, GM build quality and reliability has plummeted. They're just bad vehicles.
