WINDSOR, Ont. — Concerns are rising over plans by NextStar Energy Inc., a joint venture between Stellantis and LG Energy Solution, to bring in foreign workers to help build a battery plant in Windsor, Ont., that is being supported by an expected $15 billion in public funding.
Federal Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre said Monday that he is pushing for a full inquiry into the issue to find out how many workers the company plans to bring in from abroad.
"Our money should fund our paycheques," he said in Ottawa. "We want a commitment that none of the money should go to temporary foreign work."
