Canada patient with GM, union talks: Industry Minister

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Ottawa will be patient with talks between General Motors Corp and the Canadian Auto Workers union as there is progress toward a cost-savings deal ahead of a month-end deadline for a government rescue package, Industry Minister Tony Clement said on Wednesday.

“My latest reports from my officials are that progress has been made, but they’re not at a final destination. As long as we’re moving in the right direction not the wrong direction, I‘m willing to be patient on this,” Clement told reporters.
