Last night, Trump flew to Michigan to give his auto sector speech. For one thing, he says he isn’t abandoning fuel efficiency standards, but they’ll be reviewed, and auto workers' jobs will count as much as environmental lobbyists.
He says he wants car companies to start building in Michigan again.
But what about Canada?
Our auto industry is still huge. Not sure how they’re going to survive Trudeau’s carbon tax and Kathleen Wynne’s cap and trade, though.
What if Trump says, I want Ford, Chrysler and GM to move to the U.S.?
Let’s look to the hard-left-wing, Trudeau-loving union called Unifor, that represents many auto workers. Here’s Unifor’s national boss, Jerry Dias:
"Maybe we can listen to people who have a preoccupation with creating jobs, even if he’s completely nuts. Trump is nuts, let’s be candid, he shoots from the hip, he’s racist, sexist, he’s got some huge problems, but at least he’s having a discussion about creating jobs, which I welcome.”
But wait: Jerry Dias’ endorsed candidate, Carbon Tax Trudeau, won. Cap and Trade Wynne won. Dias got his socialist, environmentalist dream.
I bet a lot of Canadian autoworkers wish they had a “nut” as a president too…
NEXT: Martin Collacott is a former Canadian ambassador in Asia and the Middle East.
Tonight, he and I talk about the urgent need for a government plan to deal with the rush of illegals flooding across our border.
THEN: Former Harper cabinet minister Joe Oliver says the Trudeau Liberals are "drunk on spending" and need to halt their proposed raise to the capital gains tax.
