Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta WKIINKSDAY, .ll'i.Y 10. 1010 TIHv LET I lim ID flEKAI.D PACK FIVE (1) Proctor-Gamble Co., Hamilton, Ont. Gore Park, Hamilton, Ont. The Gray-Dart Motors Co., Ltd., Chatham, Ont. Canadian Ingersoll Rand Co.'s Plant at Sher- brookc, Que. THE process ot the establishment of branches' ot American industrial concerns within tho' borders of tho Dominion of Canada baa. ibccn going oil for a good many since tit became apparent that no political party was ilikely to modify very seriously Uie "protective" (character of tbo country's fiscal policy. It might ireasoniibly have been expected tnat the shock or jtvar would put a slop, temporarily at least, to ithis process ot peaceful penetration; but tbo op- ipDaite has been the case. Even since the recov- ery of capital from its paralysis, eight months or, EO after the war heyiin, tho establishment ot Am- erican branches In Canada has been going on with greater energy and determination tliar. before, and investigation has shown that the war, instead of discouraging such adventure, has afforded new reasons to justify it. Speaking broadly, tho American firms which.havo established themselves in Canad" regarueu present .as a lavoraoie opportunity lor a cam- in It because of their own abnormal cash reserves, and the prosperity and activity of the Dominion; or (this Is ;1he explanation in the majority of cases) they have had an eye not ionly 10 tho Canadian market but also to the vast territory of the Entente Allies, and are convinced that in the fiscal arrange- ments which will follow the conclusion of peace, uo neutral coun- try will receive "most-1'avored-nation" treatment from any of tha 'Allied countries. Canada, combining the economic advantages of the American continent, with its wealth of raw material and of skilled labor, with (the market advantages of a member of the belligerent Entente, is the natural basis of operations for an American concern with de- :6isnfi upon European markets. This, according to tho industrial rcorn miss loners of various Canadian cities, and of the Canadian [Pacific Railway, is the main motive in '.nduclng moat of the recent (American branch establishments In Canada, and is likely to bring Canada, within the nest few years industrial capital running to jinany hundreds of millions. American concerns which have established plants in Canada since the beginning of is an imposing evidence the attractive power of the Canadian market find of Canadian export possibilities. It should be added .that all ot the establishments are substantial plants, built for meeting a 'largo business and for carrying on, not merely a sales agency or an assem- bling process, but practically the entire process of production from the purchased raw material to tho finished urticle. One of the first American products to meet with an avowed policy of fiscal discouragement in Free Trade England, as a result of the war and Its effect upon trade balancea.was the automobile. The establishment of branches of American automobile concerns in Canada has already been go- ing on for some years, owing to the great growth in Canadian consumption of the article and the popularity of American brands. But the European eltuation has given a tremendous impetus to tho movement. Existing plants have been vastly enlarged, and three new and Important plants hare teen undertaken, those of the Maxwell Motors at Windsor, Ontario, the Chalmers Motor Company at Walkerville, Ontario, and the Chevrolet Motor Company at Oshawa, Ontario. This Is exclusive of the acquisition and en- largement of Canadian-owned plants by Americanpflrma for the manufacture of American brundB of cars. One of the biggest Industrial undertakings of the year was that ot the of an Immense plant in Hamilton, Ontario. The famous packing house of Proctor Gamble Company, the proprietors of Ivory Soap and of sundry other aoap and cottonseed oil products, who have commenced the erection .Libbey, McNoIll ft Libby has established itself in Hamilton, Ontario {which city, it will he nsted, IB a favorite with American Industries owing to its combination of cheap power and good labor supply'.with the best of shipping The YSmlsh Color Company has put up a branch fac- lory at Toronto, Ontario; and the Link Belt Company is locating in the same city. Sharer Olllett. makern of store counters, are establishing at Guelph, Ontario. The Maple Leaf Condensing Company, a Detroit concern, IB at CheEtervttle, Ontario. ,The number of concerns establishes in the Province of Quebec has iheen small compared with those of Ontario, out the present labor situation, which Is much more favourable In Quebec, is likely to correct that tendency to some extent. An important asset to the industries of Sherbrooke, Que- bec, is that of Kayser Company, the famous manufacturers of silk gloves, stockinRs, and other articles. The Aetna Explosive Company, at Druni- mondville, Quebec, has been improperly regarded as a war industry; it is so for the time being, but Its immense plant has been designed, so as to be applicable to the manufacture of dyes when the eyplosive business i'alls off. A rumor, which appears to have good foundation, though not officially confirmed, asserts that one of the great American chemical and explosives concerns has made all preparations Cor the establishment of a plant for the production of nitrates from atmospheric nitrogen at one ot the hitherto undeveloped powers of Quebec Province. Several American concerns already operating in Canada have found that their existing plants are not equal to the demands which they antici- pate. The Dominion Sugar Company, which is largely financed by American sugar-refining capital. Is adding a big plant at Chatham, Ontario, to its ex- isting buildings at Wallaoeburg in the same province. The Goodyear Tire, Rubber Company is removing from small premises at Bowmanville, On- tario, to an Immense property which it has bought at New Toronto, Ontario. These examples, all of them being enterprises undertaken long after Canada's participation in the war and her financial sacrifices for that cause: were known and allowed for, are convincing evidence that the progressive manufacturers of the United States have perfect confidence in Canada as a field for industrial Investment- As most ot them are looking for an export trade It would appear that they are satisfied that production costs in; Canada will not be materially altered after the war, either as regards labor, supply cost of living, or burdens of_ taxation. Mr. Oraham W. Curtis, In-' dustrial Agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway, stated recently that he had found American business men greatly impressed by the showing of financial American confidence In, and comprehension ot, Canada, was greater than strength made by the Dominion since the war, and that undoubtedly, at any other previous date.
