Wind Warning for: Caledon

ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA AT 2:09 P.M. EST MONDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2014
Summary
Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring. A deep low over northeastern Ontario will drag a sharp cold front east across Southern Ontario this afternoon and evening. The front’s arrival will be heralded by very strong and gusty southwesterly winds. Sustained wind speeds of 60 to 70 km/h with frequent gusts of 90 to 100 km/h are expected to begin this afternoon north of Lake Erie and early this evening north of Lake Ontario.

Ontario Secures Honda Investment of $857 Million

Partnership Protects 4,000 Jobs and Long-Term Future of Alliston Plant

NEWS November 6, 2014

Ontario is partnering with Honda to make the company’s Alliston plant one of the most innovative in North America, Premier Kathleen Wynne announced today. The partnership reinforces Ontario’s position as a global leader in auto manufacturing, and will protect 4,000 highly skilled jobs at the plant and thousands more in the supply chain.

Honda will invest about $857 million over three years in leading-edge technologies for vehicle assembly and engine manufacturing, as well as worker training and research and development partnerships with Ontario universities and colleges. This project will make Honda’s Alliston operation a teaching plant for all other Honda facilities worldwide.

Ontario will provide a conditional grant of up to $85.7 million for this transformational project. Provincial support helped Honda of Canada Manufacturing in Alliston win out over other Honda plants which were competing to be chosen for this project. The province’s investment will help enhance workers’ skills and secure the Alliston plant’s long-term future.

Attracting new investments and helping the province’s businesses compete globally is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.

QUOTES

“Our government is proud to partner with companies that are making the investments in innovation and skills that help us compete globally. The fact that Ontario successfully competed for this project reinforces our position as a global leader in auto manufacturing, and it is a vote of confidence in our province as a great place to do business – now and in the future.” –– Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario

“Honda is a mainstay of Ontario’s auto sector and manufacturing base. This investment helps to position the Alliston facility as an innovation leader in Honda’s global operations. Our government will keep working with all auto companies to attract new investment in the competitive global auto industry.”

— Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure

“With today’s $857-million investment, Honda is pleased to extend our commitment and deep manufacturing roots in Ontario. In 1986, we became the first Japanese auto company to manufacture in Ontario. Today, we employ more than 4,000 highly skilled Ontarians in our three plants, have built over six million vehicles in this province and our total manufacturing investments in Ontario will now reach nearly $3.9 billion. I would like to thank the Government of Ontario for supporting our efforts to innovate and remain competitive in an increasingly aggressive global automotive market.”

— Jerry Chenkin, President and CEO, Honda Canada Inc.

QUICK FACTS

* The Honda investment will generate hundreds of millions of dollars of new business for Ontario-based auto parts companies that supply the Alliston operations.

* Ontario’s business support grants are contingent on the company meeting investment and job targets. Projects are closely monitored over their lifespan to protect taxpayers’ investment.

* Honda became the first Japanese automaker to manufacture in Canada when it opened its Alliston assembly plant in 1986. It added a second assembly plant in 1998 and an engine plant in 2008.

Precipitation that started as rain in regions south of Georgian Bay, including the Dundalk Highlands, and will transition to snow late this evening. East of Georgian Bay, including the Haliburton Highlands, rain or wet snow will transition to accumulating bands of snow this evening and continue tonight.

Current indications suggest that total snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 cm will be possible south of Georgian Bay tonight, particularly over areas of higher elevation. A few centimetres are also possible from areas near Kitchener to Caledon and eastward through York region. To the east of Georgian Bay, total amounts of near 10 cm will be possible by Saturday morning. However actual snowfall accumulation on the ground in these areas may be less due to melting on the still relatively warm ground.

The snow is expected to taper off early Saturday morning as the low system pulls away to the southeast.
