Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Ontario's outgoing premier, Dalton McGuinty, were among the politicians on hand to make the announcement in Cambridge, Ont. The Japanese automaker is building a new assembly line in the city to increase production of Lexus luxury cars, including a new model with a hybrid gasoline-electric engine.
