Donut Media’s video is enlightening.
Canada makes millions of cars every year.
Canada may be known as the Great White North where electricity has just now reached our igloos but the fact is that we were once a huge player in the Global Automotive market. Although we can’t claim any mainstream homegrown car brands of our own today, the country still plays a huge role in the industry on the continent.
The very entertaining gang over at Donut Media put together a great short video that properly and smartly explains Canada’s place in the car business today, its roots, and what has transpired in the last Century.
The most interesting aspect about Canada is, and the video mentions it, that some of the best-known current American muscle cars available today such as the Dodge Challenger and Charger and their countless versions are not only assembled in Canada but were designed by Ralph Gilles’ team. The latter, although born in New York, was raised in Montreal, QC, making him a Canadian.
Although we Canucks love a good joke, the video’s semi-serious take on the subject is refreshing. It is certainly worth a watch.
