Trudeau visits Brampton for official Amazon opening

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was on hand for the official opening of Amazon's new distribution centre

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Brampton Thursday to take part in the official opening of Amazon’s new high-tech distribution centre on the South West end of Brampton.

The new cutting-edge facility already employs 350 people and is set to employ well over 700 full-time employees in the coming months.

The prime minister says that Amazon’s new distribution centre is proof that large corporations see Canada has a worthy place to invest and do business.

Because of the new distribution centre, Amazon Prime customers living in the GTA can now enjoy same day delivery for orders over $25.
