ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The General Motors plant in Wentzville, Missouri is set to announce a production milestone regarding two new mid-sized pick-up trucks.  The 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado will be built exclusively at the Wentzville plant and sold across the world.  Nearly 2,100 people work at the plant.  During a stretch this year the plant was hiring about 35 employees per week.

 GM officials are expected to reveal more details about the impact of the milestone in the production lines soon.

    The milestone is that EVERY vehicle they produce is defective and requires three recalls. That’s a new record for them.

    The news media, beginning early today, have said ‘ good news for the St. Louis region’. Wrong.
    Wentzville is not in the St. Louis ‘region’. Wentzville is in the center of a region that has been created by the flight of population and businesses out of St. Louis and St. Louis County.
    The eastern border of this region is the Missouri River. The western border is Warrenton. This is the ‘growth’ region. At least for now-fewer taxes, room for growth, comparatively less crime, fewer restrictions on doing business, from free-parking to reasonably-priced parking. News guys and gals:, study geography, just a bit.
