What is Ontario's Great
est Need, in Your Opinion?
Packing Plant in Business .Van's Opinion
An Ontario business man, who has ideas
but wanted the Editor to write them has this
to say concerning Ontario's Greatest Need:
"Ontario should have a meat packing plant.
This would not c ly serve to give the city a pay
roll but it would prevent a useless economic
waste for this entire section.
"Now we raise meat here, cattle, sheep
and hogs. We ship them to Middle Western
packing plants and then turn around and buy
back, hams, bacon, dried and corned beef. Why
should we have to pay freight two ways on the
bacon and hams we eat? Why should not these
things be made here?
"There is plenty of beef and pork as well
as sheep raised in this section to keep a pack
ing plant busy nd beside furnishing a market
for the stockmen it would furnish employment
for labor here. It would make a payroll and it
would develope a real big industry.
"It would add a whistle to Ontario and a
few whistles with the pay rolls that go with
them would make Ontario the city she will nev
er be without them.
"What Ontario needs is a pay roll, and a
meat packing plant would create one."
