As everyone knows (or think they know), General Motors Corporation was bailed out by the U.S. Government in the middle of 2009. Technically, however, GM did not get a bailout. Instead, it was sold, under Chapter 11 bankruptcy rules, to a conglomerate headed by the U.S. Treasury. This is why it came to be known as "Government Motors." The conglomerate included the Canada Development Investment Corporation, the Government of Ontario, old GM bondholders and the U.S. and Canadian Auto Worker unions (UAW and CAW).
