These are not MY quotes or statements - but something I received as an email.

Keep in mind... in 2014 the Heinz plant will be closing in Leamington
and the Kellogg plant in London.
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 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 saw 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
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.
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.
