If the Canadian Auto Workers union goes on strike against Detroit's three automakers next week, analysts say the impact would be felt quickly in the U.S. A strike would be felt in some U.S. factories within a week, and dealers could quickly run short of some models since higher demand has kept them from building up stocks. But for Canada, the future of the country's auto industry may be at stake.

    Canadians are smart. They won't cut their own throats.

    As a Canadian, I doubt we are any smarter than any other country, and the arrogance of the Unions is a prime example of that.

    I hope the unions and the management reach their agreements without a strike. My 2009 Equinox is Canadian assembled, and it had no problems in three years, so Canadian auto workers did a great job.

     

    If there were no more Equinox made and sold, the Japanese get a bigger foothold on the SUV market.

    They are going to strike themselves out of a job. there are a lot of empty auto factories here in USA, the tooling can be moved at minimal cost.
    If i were a Canadian auto worker I would be looking for another job before I went on strike.
