DETROIT (AP) -- Chrysler says it will take steps to build new cars and minivans in Ontario without incentives from the Canadian government.

The company says it is withdrawing all requests for financial aid for plants in Windsor and Brampton, Ontario, because the projects have become a political football.

Chrysler now builds minivans at the Windsor plant and big cars in Brampton.

Chrysler has been talking to the federal and provincial governments about an incentive package that will help offset higher wages in Canada.

The company says Tuesday that it will start the process of upgrading the Canadian factories with its own capital. But spending the money will depend on Canada's competitiveness with other global factories.
