Honda halts production in Canada plant

Honda Motor Co. announced it will shut down its factory in Canada over demonstrations that engulfed the nation in the past few weeks. Its United States plants will remain open for now but the situation could change soon, the automaker explained.

The company's decision comes after protesters caused a traffic jam across the Ambassador's Bridge, which serves as one of the most important trade links between the US and Canada.

The move follows shutdowns already announced by other carmakers, including Ford and Toyota.
