Ontario had something to do with WW2?

Reopening and renewing of the GM Plant

Can't be all that sustainable then. Then again nobody ever defined at what level it would be sustainable either. I'm assuming at a level that keeps the bureaucraps in charge in paycheques until the solid gold pension kicks in.

Tories fear marathon voting session may have exhausted political capital | News | National Post

OTTAWA — After almost 24 hours of bobbing up and down in their seats for votes on the government’s budget bill, there’s no doubt Conservatives MPs are tired.

But government MPs and cabinet ministers are also expressing private concerns they’ll come out of the showdown over Bill C-38 having exhausted some of their political capital as well.

Conversations with Conservative caucus members conducted on condition they would not be quoted suggest MPs are hearing complaints from Tory voters in their ridings about the government’s bundling several measures into a budget bill that have nothing directly to do with the nation’s finances.

Those complaints may start anew in a few months.
