MONTREAL — In the wake of General Motors Canada’s announcement late last year that it’s shutting down its iconic Oshawa assembly plant, a new report from the provincial finances watchdog highlights the damage done to Ontario’s households by the decline of manufacturing.

After-tax incomes in Ontario grew an average of just 0.5 per cent between 2000 and 2016, compared to an average of 1 to 2 per cent for all other provinces. (Link fixed)
