Ford says Canadian investments still on track
A top Ford executive says the automaker's commitment to investing in its Ontario facilities has not wavered since the election of U-S President Donald Trump.
Mark Buzzell, who heads Ford's Canadian operations, spoke about the company's manufacturing plans during an interview at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto.
Ford promised last fall it would inject $700 million into its Canadian operations as part of a labour deal with Unifor, which represents about 6700 workers at the company's facilities in Ontario.
Buzzell says that money will go towards Ford's engine plants in Windsor, as well as the assembly plant in Oakville that produces the Ford Edge, Ford Flex, Lincoln M-K-X and Lincoln M-K-T.
