Quote, unquote: Clement on auto sector

From the Globe and Mail: “I don’t think it is in the interest of the Canadian public to have continued funding to a company if there is no deal with their union and if there is no outside investor, or no outside partner in the case of Fiat. Those were our conditions… so if you’re asking me whether I’m willing to funnel Canadian government money, taxpayer money, when we do not have an acceptable plan on a go-forward basis, I cannot do that. I don’t think it would be responsible.”
