GM St. Catharines visit
Had a great visit with Carolyne Watts, Plant Manager and Gemma Copland, GM’s new Personnel Director Global Propulsion Systems. General Motors Canada continues to invest in the St. Catharines plant, stimulating growth, innovation and good, high-paying jobs.
St. Catharines has a long and proud history as an auto city. As a member of the Auto Mayors – we want to ensure that through trade agreements Canadian jobs and communities are supported.
We urge that the Federal government continues to work with the Canadian auto industry to maintain and expand automotive manufacturing in Ontario. We will continue to work closely with our local MPs Chris Bittle and Vance Badawey who are both supportive of the auto sector.
The auto industry contributes millions in wages, taxes, research and investment. Ontario’s auto industry is competitive, and is vital to our economic well-being. We need to act now to ensure it is protected.
