Windsor Mayor To Focus On Diversification And Attracting Investment

Windsor could be the next Oshawa and it's time to start preparing for that reality, according to mayor Drew Dilkens.

That was Dilkens' main message during his inaugural council address at St. Clair Centre for the Arts Monday night.

He said even though Fiat Chrysler has given no indication that they are leaving, "we must think about it, we must talk about it, and we must plan and prepare for this possibility."

"We need to start planning as if we've just been given notice that 2025 is the year this plant will close."

Diversifying industry and continuing to attract investments to Windsor are two key points Dilkens mentioned as ways to ensure people who could lose their auto jobs down the line, are able to shift to something else.
