    GM Oshawa plant closing could affect nearly 15 per cent of Canadian industry jobs

    General Motors’ decision to shutter its flagship Oshawa, Ont. plant in 2019 is poised to have broad ripple effects across Canada’s auto industry.

    The plant’s closing will put more than 2,500 employees out of work, but the blow to the Canadian auto-sector workforce is far larger. The move could compromise the jobs of as many as 15,000 Canadians working for auto-parts suppliers, Flavio Volpe, president of the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association told Global News.

    Over 100 years of car manufacturing at Oshawa, what a shame. Aren't they making Silverados these days, doesn't GM need truck/SUV production??

    Next ride: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD

    It's definitely a bigger hit for GM Canada. Only vehicle production left will be Ingersoll - Equinox.

    Trucks are just Indiana overflow.
