It's not bad enough for Labatt to shutter its Lakeport brewery, ostensibly because the facility is inefficient. (Lakeport was efficient enough to sell a-dollar-a-beer at a profit before Labatt bought it in the wake of changes to federal income trust law.)
No, Labatt has gone in for extra evilness by salting the earth before it leaves:
Labatt Breweries of Canada, which bought the brewery in 2007, says the decision is final and the equipment in the building will be hauled away as Labatt seeks to "improve its operating efficiency in a demanding market."
143 Lakeport workers will lose their jobs when the plant closes on April 30.
