Subject: Fwd: Made In Canada…take a moment to read the label!
Keep in mind… in 2014 the Heinz plant will be closing in Leamington
and the Kellogg plant in London …
THIS IS WORTH READING AND PASSING ON TO ALL CANADIANS ….
A Physics teacher in high school once told the students:
That while one grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn’t slow a train very much, a billion of them would.
With that thought in mind, read the following, obviously written by a patriotic Canadian:
Shopping in Lowe’s the other day for some reason and just for the fun of it I was looking at the garden hose attachments. They were all made
in China . The next day I was in Home Hardware and just for the fun of it I checked the hose attachments there. They were made in Canada !
Start looking. .. In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else – even their job.
A quote from a consumer: “My grandson likes Hershey’s candy. I noticed, though, that it is marked made in Mexico now, instead of Smiths Falls , Ontario .
I do not buy it any more”.
My favorite toothpaste,Colgate, is made in Mexico now. I have switched to Crest.
You have to read the labels on everything.
This past weekend I was at Wal-Mart. I needed 60W light bulbs. I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to the GE brand I normally buy was an
off-brand labelled, “Everyday Value”. I picked up both types of bulbs and compared the stats – they were the same except for the price. The
GE bulbs were more money than the Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO
and the Everyday Value brand was made in – get ready for this – Canada at a company in Ontario …
Their Equate Products are also made in Canada, and are very good. Just to add my own experience on buying Made in Canada , I was looking for
canned mushrooms that were made in Canada and could never find any, so I would buy fresh. But recently I found Ravine mushrooms – made in
Canada with a little red maple leaf on the can. A little more money but when I opened the can I looked at mushrooms that look like real mushrooms,
not a mushroom that looks like it was cleaned in bleach.
Another product I no longer buy is:
Del Monte or Dole canned fruit. Del Monte is packaged in Taiwan and Dole is now a product of China ..
Why should we pay for their fruit when our growers are left with fruit rotting on the trees. E.D. Smith is still made in Canada… buy
theirs, at least you will know what is in it and have some quality control.
By the way, all pickles with the Presidents Choice label and the No Name yellow label [Superstore] are made in India . Think about it, water
from the Ganges is used… yes THAT Ganges , the one that the people use as a toilet.
I started checking food for ‘Produdct of China’ after I’d watched a documentary on China which showed the polluted rivers and later showed the farmers watering fields with it. Yuk!
I was shocked to see the fresh garlic I had bought was from China. I had since found Canadian garlic in the same store. :)
Even if you pay a few cents more, think about the sweets and chocolate you buy which is so over priced and doing more harm than good.
So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every day that are made right here.
My challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made In Canada .
The job you save may be your own or your neighbour’s! (Your children & grandchildren, also.)
If you accept this challenge, pass it on to others in your address book so we can all start buying Canadian, one light bulb at a time!
Stop buying from overseas companies! (We should have awakened two decades ago.)
Let’s get with the program. Help our fellow Canadians keep their jobs and create more jobs here in Canada …
If President Obama insists on a ‘Made in America ‘ Policy, which is commendable of him, to support American workers, we should do likewise.
BUY CANADIAN! Read the labels. Support Canadian jobs, it is OUR choice.

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents. At that time we believed they would always travel on by our side.
However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, teachers, classmates, relatives, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize that they have vacated their seats!
This train ride will be full of joy, happiness, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers…requiring that we give the best of ourselves, helping friends, neighbours, relatives and family.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way – love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty — we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life.
Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey!
