Canadian media outlets report that 550 workers will be laid off at the plant, which makes vehicles for public transportation.  It is currently the city's largest private-sector employer.

"We have been talking to everybody who is relevant to this situation and working hard for some time," Mayor Bill Mauro said in a news release. "We would like to see all parties work together to come to an agreement that would see jobs remain at the Thunder Bay plant."

Mauro said the city will do everything it can to ensure the long-term viability of the plant.
