    Why America's rush to EVs might kill the entire Canadian auto parts business

    Here’s some irony. Looking at the below list, the oil & gas industry in Canada is worth more in exports than cars, car parts & accessories, gold, medications, & the aircraft and spacecraft (I’m looking at you Bombardier) COMBINED…with Canada having the 4th largest reserves on the planet….so...

    Why America's rush to EVs might kill the entire Canadian auto parts business

    Sort of. If the logic is that Canada has oil in surplus which it does….. does it have the capacity to increase its exports to the US with the current infrastructure (?) or is it more politically expedient to focus on OPEC+ who has little to no interest in increasing production?? If the focus is...

    Why America's rush to EVs might kill the entire Canadian auto parts business

    Yeah, it does. It’s only in the East (I live less than 10 blocks away from Regina’s old GMC Plant, that folded when all the auto manufacturing was relocated East 80 years ago) but it’s a thing that exists. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regina_Plant It’s not a lucrative as the Canadian oil & gas...

    Unity & Equalization??

    Maybe it’s just simple financial forecasting. Quebec has to plan for the day the teats will run dry. 60 consecutive years has been a good run on Equilization gig but eventually the piggy bank makes louder & louder rattles as the coins get fewer & fewer.

    Alec Baldwin fired shot that killed one, wounded another on film set

    It gets weirder…Alec Baldwin is saying he didn’t pull the trigger now.

    Omicron

    I’m not so sure I like the sound of the “Omic” part of this but the rest of the name has a nice ring to it, at least for myself. It’s sorta like having a Hurricane use your name….so you’re not sure if you should be against it or for it?

    Kyle Rittenhouse

    I’ve had no dog in the fight in this situation so I’ve pretty much just watched it from the sidelines. Between LeBron & Kyle, I know who currently has the deepest pockets, but this doesn’t look like it’ll play out well for LeBron (hearts & minds, etc….) picking on a teenager regardless of the...

    Why America's rush to EVs might kill the entire Canadian auto parts business

    “This discriminatory action” could be the “death knell” of the Canadian auto industry. So says Flavio Volpe, and he should know, since he’s the president of the Auto Parts Manufacturers’ Association of Canada, the organization tasked with, amongst other things, enticing automakers and their...

    'Pipelines will be blown up,' says David Suzuki, if leaders don't act on climate change

    I meant, breeding fruit flys with other fruit flys, & not….how it actually reads above.

    Unity & Equalization??

    Quebec Premier François Legault has set the ambitious long-term goal of increasing his province’s economic growth to the point that it no longer needs or receives equalization payments. The province’s fiscal update last week showed that Mr. Legault is making some progress on that goal, with...

    CDN-Economy & Related Factors

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland have argued Ottawa cannot be held responsible for Canada’s current annual inflation rate of 4.7% — its highest level in 18 years. That has raised prices for food, shelter, energy, and many other goods and services — often well...

    Great news, guys! Twitter is (probably) about to get worse!

    Why should he distinguish? Good question, ‘cuz everybody knows that ALL White People are or aren’t something or another!! What is the definition of ‘Racist’ anyway?

    CDN-Economy & Related Factors

    Justin Trudeau not only doesn’t know what a litre of milk costs, he and his government don’t get why this is an issue. Time and again when asked about inflation, Trudeau and his ministers respond by talking about their plan for $10-a-day child care. Not only does this idea of parents paying...

    'Pipelines will be blown up,' says David Suzuki, if leaders don't act on climate change

    I thought Suzuki was a Geneticist or maybe a Zoologist? Didn’t he make his name early breeding fruit flies or something like that before the CBC adopted him?
