‘Please send us more chips’ Canadian lawmaker says – Reuters

Reuters reported that a Canadian lawmaker who represents an area in the country’s main auto-producing province pleaded with Taiwan to “send us more chips” to help resolve an ongoing shortage that continues to snarl some production lines.

“We’ve got parking lots full of cars, finished product cars, that sit in the parking lot, can’t be sold, because we don’t have semiconductors,” said Chris Lewis, a member of parliament from Ontario which is home to Ford Motor Co and other auto factories.

Of his visit to Taiwan, he said, “I think every single meeting, including the upper levels of government, I brought up there are very major shortages of chips. It was a very broad conversation and every time we said ‘please send us more chips’.”
