I was waiting and waiting for some more light to shoot this video but I am thinking it is going to be “grey” all day
More making America Great Again news affecting Oshawa and large surrounding area including Peterborough
Last night around 7 PM Facebook broke out with the news that GM is going to announce the next day that GM will be ceasing operations in 2019 at the Oshawa plant. Oshawa is GM. It would be a crazy thought not to have the two working together. Since last night not much more has been said about the closure other then the company did confirm that it is reorganizing its operation with the closure. So far today politicians have been pointing fingers, employees are reeling and the union heads are pissed off. I have a few thoughts. One, if the plant closes there will be a lot of devastated families in our area. I do hope that over the year before closure a solution can be founded to keep the plant open. We have been down this path before and the plant has survived. Another thought, did we Canadians not give GM a huge bailout in the billions of dollars to keep the plant open in 2008 only to have GM announce the closure 10 years later? I am hoping the powers to be can figure a solution out to continue to keep the thousands of jobs in place and keep our economy rolling.
Selwyn Road going to get some love. What is a Community Cafe?
County Announcement: Peterborough County has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for the reconstruction of County Road 20 from County Road 18 to County Road 23 (approx. 9.5 km). This study will provide recommendations for staged improvements to the roadway including cross section, intersections, Active Transportation facilities and drainage. The EA will determine if property acquisition is required to implement the project. There is the potential for an interim improvement phase, which will be explored during this study.

Date: Thursday, November 29, 2018
PIC Time: 6-9pm (drop-in)
