In 2009, the Ontario Provincial and Canadian Federal Governments invested $13.7bn in GM stock to help bail out General Motors. Three years later over half the money has been paid back. The remaining shares are valued at around $3.5bn Both levels of Government are looking for cash to try and reduce their deficits.
