Thank you, Kevin! As a retired professional accountant with over 40 years of manufacturing experience I heartily share your point of view.

The reality is, however, that many products can be made more cheaply in other countries. Most of my former employers have closed their plants or downsized and moved the remaining capacity to other Canadian locations.

I could take you for a lengthy tour of Hamilton to show you the places that I worked during my career. Not all of them are now used for manufacturing; one was for a long time an actual hole in the ground. I think it is now a parking lot.

Perhaps I did not choose my employers wisely and should have looked for ones that are more viable under today's circumstances. I am pleased to note that you have found one of them.
