Update #3: Thailand Parts Supply
TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Due to improvement in the overall parts
supply situation, all of Honda's North American plants, including Honda
of Canada Mfg. in Alliston, Ontario, will resume normal production by
December 1, 2011.

In 2010, 92 per cent of the Honda and Acura automobiles sold in Canada
were produced in North America. While most of parts and materials used
to produce these products are purchased from North American suppliers,
a few critical electronic parts are sourced from Thailand and other
regions of the world.
