Xinyi Canada encountering familiar opposition as it attempts to locate float glass plant in Stratford

Xinyi Canada Glass, the Chinese manufacturer that sought approval to build a float glass plant near Guelph, Ont., in 2018 and was denied by city council, has selected Stratford, Ont., as an alternative site and is holding public virtual meetings to inform the community and collect residents’ feedback. In these sessions, many of the objections that scuttled the Guelph proposal are cropping up again, despite assurances from the company and government officials that the plans meet or exceed all environmental regulations.

Report from the Straford Beacon Herald

A musician and local lawyer are leading the charge against the project, raising questions about the process Stratford council used when deciding to request a zoning order.

    To Xinyi, DO NOT WASTE your money in Canada, investing in America.
    Canada Government will PRINT money for them. They do not need to work, just laying at home which is their life forever.

    They don’t understand anything except that they know how to grab land from aboriginal people. Loser.

    American follower. What can you expect them to do. Nothing.
    Working is a joke. Lying at home is life in Canada.
    The history of the colonies teaches them to be rich if they rob.
