Durham Liberal Candidate Doesn't Know Where His Vehicle Was Built

 First the guy exploits veterans to try and get votes, and now he pulls a John McCallum trying to score votes with GM workers. Uhh, small problem Grant. That vehicle you are standing in front of looks to be a Pontiac Montana SV6. A 2009 if I'm not mistaken. It wasn't built in Oshawa, or Canada for that matter, but rather Doraville, Georgia. It's also worth pointing out GM dropped the Pontiac brand completely at the end of 2010. Can someone please inform this guy there are several GM vehicles built in Canada he could have done a photo-op with, Buick Regal, Camaro, Malibu, Impala, Equinox (running 3 shifts Grant!), and Cadillac XTS.

 If you wanna get up and proclaim your support for local industry, you might wanna actually have a vehicle produced by them. Sheesh! I'm sure Tim Naumetz  of The Hill Times is already on top of this story and will have an editorial slamming Humes for not driving a Canadian-built vehicle.

Not only was the vehicle built in Georgia, but Georgia is a Right to Work state. Wonder how his helpers feel about that little tidbit.

Mr Humes platform of honouring Veterans is admirable but his exploitation of Veterans to raise money for his own campaign is disgusting. As someone who served 22.5 years in the Army, I am offended.I have started a facebook group called "Veterans against Grant Humes Campaign" to help send him the message.
