Something big is happening in the United States, even before Donald Trump has been sworn in as president: He’s bringing factories back, reversing a 30-year-trend.
Already, he’s convinced Carrier, Ford and General Motor not to move plants to Mexico.
But what does that mean for Canada, and our auto industry (or what’s left of it)?
Canada’s dollar is the lowest it’s been in ten years. That means the whole country is 25 per cent off — and we still can’t beat the U.S. for industrial investment. Why? Well, taxes for one thing. But there’s more:
Will it be a cap and trade scheme for imaginary carbon dioxide “pollution”? Higher electricity prices in Ontario, the highest in North America already? Trudeau’s carbon tax?
There are even musings by Ontario’s Liberals to crack down on gasoline-powered cars altogether.
If you were Ford, would you really choose Canada right now?
Don’t be surprised if, one day, Donald Trump tweets about a U.S. company doing business in Canada.
And don’t be surprised if that company, already barely hanging on here because of our carbon taxes and corporate taxes, says what GM, Ford and Carrier said: President Trump, we’re coming home.
