Let them fail.

Before lending money to these firms to keep them afloat, perhaps we should look at what regulations exist to raise their costs. I'm thinking of the CAFE standards, excessive unionization, Sarbanes-Oxley. They don't need to fail - the government can improve their viability without throwing money at them!

This has nothing to do with bailing out the companies. It has all to do with bailing out the CAW.
Perhaps the CAW members who dumped a truck load of boots on Jim Flaherty's door, should ask for them back to maybe use them on their leadership.

If we bail out the auto companies, which by the way are American headquartered companies, shouldn't we bail out Nortel which is a Canadian headquartered company?

I suppose the Nortel employees union isn't as politically important as the CAW.
