We believe that Oshawa could be the manufacturing centre for battery electric vans and other vehicles, anchored by production for Canada Post and other government bodies. Government action and a public ownership model would be required. There is growing support for this proposal from unions, community activists and environmentalists. It would keep good jobs for the community, maintain manufacturing capacity for the province and country, and help us move towards a green economy.

On September 19 we released an independent feasibility study into the possibilities of electric vehicle production in Oshawa under public ownership. We can imagine and create a better future for workers and the community.
