Trudeau’s bad economy hits Liberals’ Ontario doorstep with GM’s Oshawa plant closure

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

As part of a broader global restructuring, General Motors is closing its Oshawa, Ontario plant putting nearly 3,000 people in the community of 150,000 on the unemployment line.


For what it’s worth, Trudeau is sending his thoughts. He tweeted:

“GM workers have been part of the heart and soul of Oshawa for generations - and we’ll do everything we can to help the families affected by this news get back on their feet. Yesterday, I spoke with @GM’s Mary Barra to express my deep disappointment in the closure.”

This is news that hits pretty close to home for Albertans.

Albertans know what nuking several thousand jobs in a small geographic area can do to a community. These sort of job losses can crater everything from the housing market to the local grocery store to the municipal tax base required to keep roads from falling apart.

And families become consumed with anxiety and grief.

Today, I’ll give you the breakdown of how just four cancelled or stalled pipelines have resulted in the loss of over 25,000 direct construction jobs in the oil and gas sector.

That's over nine GM plants worth of lost employment. That's a national crisis.

None of this has ever been enough to get Trudeau's attention or heartfelt concern.

Each one of those pipeline jobs is equally as important as every single job at the GM plant. And, just like at GM, each layoff notice represents another Canadian family without work as we approach Christmas.

Now that the bad economy is on the Liberals’ Ontario doorstep, maybe they’ll start to care about blue collar jobs all across this country - from frackers in Fort St. John B.C., to those on the assembly line in Orangeville, Ontario to refinery workers in St John, New Brunswick.

But I'm not holding my breath.

DAVE SUTTON:
Excellent video, thank you.
Here is the story of Queen Victoria and how she basically introduced Islam to England with her Muslim/Indian servant. She cared for this man like her own child and gave him power and wealth. His influence introduced Islamic and East Indian ideology and cultural practices. Actually, is was he who started the curry trend in England.

I found an interesting video on youtube concerning Trudeau and his “refugee” agenda. You may want to have a look and add these additional facts to your list of reasons why Trudeau is a threat to Canada.

It should be stated that there are some contributions from TheRebel included, so that tells you that this video is on track with truth.
Information is power so the time has come to start using this power to throw this bandit out of office.

When a country is being “dictated” by a sphincter. Sooner or later everyone falls into the same “hole”.

Mr-Babies-Are_parasites, here is what the link you posted says. GM is focusing on SUVs and trucks. Not cars.

“Increasing capacity utilization – in the past four years, GM has refocused capital and resources to support the growth of its crossovers, SUVs and trucks, adding shifts and investing $6.6 billion in U.S. plants that have created or maintained 17,600 jobs. With changing customer preferences in the U.S. and in response to market-related volume declines in cars, future products will be allocated to fewer plants next year.”

Selective reading, I guess. Why do you want to believe and promulgate lies?

It would be interesting to know how Trudeau’s attitude, statements and efforts would differ had the oil industry or the auto industry benn located in Quebec. 2019. THE REVOLUTION BEGINS.

Trudeau and his Liberal elites are turning Canada into a hunter / gatherer economy.

" … voting for the ndipsticks or lieberals has consequences… "

Leftist/socialist voters only think in the selfish short term … free stuff … or they equate Conservative with Christianity and hate Christianity so therefore will not vote for a right wing party.

I had to look up “schadenfreude” and I do as well for a short time until unfortunately their voting in left wing governments affect us as well.

Ah, Andrew the fake PhD Stephenson rears his head… the battery electric vehicles are failures, and these will fail as well. This is virtue signalling by GM, nothing more, and it will disappear quietly in the not to distant future. But then again, you being fooled by this, sucked in again, as usual, doesn’t surprise me at all. So, where is the proof of your PhD you liar?

The main reason GM is closing the plants that are, is because those cars aren’t selling. People are buying pick ups and SUV’s. After decades of government bureaucrats telling the auto companies what kind of vehicles to build, the market has had the last word. Electric vehicles and self driving vehicles will go the same way.

This trust fund baby has never really needed a job in his life, and probably believes that everyone else has some form of trust fund. Dumber than a rock Baby Doc Trudeau once said that small mom and pop businesses are just tax write offs for the rich. His feet stuck nowhere in reality.

28,000 voters who won’t go Liberal, but he doesn’t care. He is making legislation that will allow anyone in Canada to vote, citizen or not, and hey, just open the flood gates at the illegal Quebec crossing and ship up people sitting outside the US-Mexico border and he will have more than enough replacement voters.

At $50,000 of government (tax payer money) handouts plus medical, dental, and whatever, entitled “migrants & refugees” will be voting Liberal so long as the money keeps coming to them; and they don’t need to work. The 28,000 Canadian citizens, soon unemployed, can apply for unemployment benefits that won’t last for too long. When the UI runs out, they can apply for welfare, but get in line well behind the border jumpers and fake refugee claims.

Good report Sheila. Trudeau & his ilk pay homage to the environmentalists & the rest of us be damned. Nothing like that ever came out of his mouth re Albertans, so Mette Reid, you’re bang on. So much for those at this plant who gave him a vote, are they going to vote for him again in 2019?

Greg, as a Studebaker fan I am deeply offended by equating that prestigious marque with The Groper. I know it rolls off the tongue quite glibly but Studebaker deserves better than that and The Groper deserves considerably less.

The great Studebaker:

The Trud is doing a good job, if you are one of the NWO Marxist who pull his strings. He needs to be deadicated, if you see what I mean.

Just another example of 60 – 70% of the electorate getting what they vote for. GM says it is closing down this plant so that they can concentrate on electric vehicle production. turdo is just a symptom of that problem.

With Trudeau at the helm we could say any moron could run the country,problem is this moron is deliberately running this country into the ground!!

Ottawa when run by the Liberals has never really shown too much concern for job losses in the West until it hits the Federal government purse either by way of lost revenue from taxes or by way of the Provincial Equalization Program.

And so many people, especially from the East, wonder why Alberta despises the Liberals.

Alberta just does not have the 15 billion (approx.) to keep shoveling over in Provincial Equalization Payments.

I wonder if Trudeau even knows that most of those billions in EQ cash comes from the oilsands he so desperately wants to destroy.

…as Justin and his handler’s evil plans come to fruition.
The Trudeau Liberal regime with their Globalist comrades and their Globalist agenda is the beginning of the end of Canada as a wealthy and free 1st World sovereign nation…
I wonder how long it will take for enough people to wake up and depose this treasonous criminal and wanna-be-king (or queen), with a state-sanctioned rope!?
…if it isn’t too late already!

Nothing to do with Islam but a lot to do with the Trud’s economic disasters and his snide attitude toward Trump?
commented 2018-11-26 19:07:27 -0500
They don’t care and that’s the point! Trudeau’s goal was and is to kill the economy, to kill the middle class, to kill Canadian jobs. The only reason that he would pretend to care about the job-loss in Oshawa is because of Liberal votes. He does not care about Canadian families unless those families are part of his agenda and belong to the Peaceful Religion. Mostly, he cares about pleasing the corrupt UN and his place within it!
