      This should be an opportunity for canada to lead changes in the best interest for Canadians, and invest the money in Canada, build factories in Canada, no bailing out US corporations that will take that money and run away with it... adapt the investments to the current necessity of the consumer since is the consumer that will decide if a product will be a success or not.

      WTf is this Volleyball? All they are doing is passing the blame to each other. Politicians suck. If this is so important, why won't they start some business and hire some people. Funny that the conservatives are concerned about jobs, aren't they suppose to be concerned about profits for businesses? Politicians are not problem solvers they problem blamers. NDP's keep on saying "saving jobs" , don't they know how economics and global trade work? Apparently not. Automobile manufacturers are moving because of labour costs. International trade is about competition and Mexico is way cheaper.

      those are large investments can you be a little more specific where those billions of dollars went that are supposed to be creating jobs? Or is that money looted from the Canadian economy the same money that's being looted and greased has partnerships are dissolved illegally as the companies leave and Canadians are being sold to globalism. Watch the way these people word things they are very very slick and they are taking all of your assets and they are selling them to foreign interests, wholesale

      The only intervention that the Government needs to do now is to buy transit vehicles, not bailing out. Socialized public transit. Ask GM or Ford to make one. If they can make cop-cars, they can make this. Hell, Ford used to build tanks.

      Ok..look at the WHOLE situation, its easy!!
      ..Cars currently made at Canada plant are...

      Cadillac XTS (2012-2019)
      Chevrolet Impala (1999–2019)
      Chevrolet Silverado (2018-2019)
      GMC Sierra (2018-2019)

      The current-generation Impala is also sold in the Middle East, China, and South Korea.

      The current impala AND that caddy are based on the GM Epsilon II platform used around the world. Soooo...

      GM is closing a old plant in a more LABOR expensive country..and cause of the tariffs WILL shift production of cars to the GM PLANT in China that already uses the SAME platform!! IN CHINA GM in partnership with Roewe and using the GM Epsilon II PLATFORM)..

      Roewe GM Assembly Lingang, Shanghai, China

      There goes jobs to plant in China facing TARIFF by that bozo in the white lower paid workers and ever growing Chinese market for GM based cars.

      The truck manufacturing will go to other GM plants that already make those same usually not just ONE plant makes only one vehicle.

      Canadian taxpayers have simply GIVEN many billions of dollars away to GM and other multinational corporations as corporate handouts, Research and Development Grants and outright giveaways. May I suggest that these taxpayer "giveaways" henceforth be classified as invested shares in the name of the "People" of Canada. Further, if all of these taxpayer handouts were classified as I have suggested, when these corporations decide to pull-up stakes and move out of Canada, all corporate assets should remain in Canada in lue of our tax investments in our own country.

      2500 jobs lost hmm, 100,000, 2500 just numbers right? Believe me I feel your pain but at the same time I wonder has there ever been a union boss set on shutting your production down on your livelihood? Or at the same time a carbon emissions assessment on car factories in Ontario?
      with love, Alberta.

      With Trudeau's Tax hikes, carbon tax, and making sure that manufacturing in Canada has the most difficult time ig getting product to market. General Motors has no choice but to move out of a country that puts blockages in front of manufacturing.

      It was harper that gave gm welfare billions of dollars as he tried making me work till i was 67 it was Trudeau reversed it back to 65. Everytime the the PCs get in they screw over the working guy and the poor so their rich buddies dont have to pay their share of taxes. Look what Dug Ford did to the workers. So as a guy who has been at the same job for 28yrs with 4 to go not 6 Thank you Mr Trudeau.

      Here's a crazy idea, use the taxes from Cannabis to help industry, rather than giving millions to law enforcement agencies and opiate treatment. Can't really afford to pay for drug addicts to kick their habit. Kind of common knowledge that opiates are addictive. They volunteered. In fact, I heard the military pays for soldiers to get "medical weed". Why are we paying for other peoples' weed? Pretty sure there are cheaper alternatives. Let's see the accounting for that, just how much of our money did the military spend to buy soldiers weed? Did they buy them medical beer too? It's a sedative, right? Well, better buy em a 6 pack to wash down the weed then.
