At a news conference in Oshawa, Ont., federal minister François-Philippe Champagne (innovation, science and industry) and Ontario Premier Doug Ford announce their governments will each contribute $259 million to support General Motors’ (GM) $2-billion investment in two assembly plants.

Also taking part in the announcement are Vic Fedeli (provincial minister of economic development, job creation and trade) and Ryan Turnbull (MP for Whitby), as well as GM representatives David Carlisle (executive vice-president and president, North America), David Paterson (vice-president of corporate and environmental affairs), Scott Bell (vice-president of Global Chevrolet), and Jennifer Wright (executive director of communications).
