I anadian nickel CANADA produces no coffee. Brazil produces no Nickel. But Canadians like coffee for breakfast. Brazil, on the eve of great indus- trial expansion, is going to need more and more Nickel. So Canada imports Brazilian coffee. Brazil, it is hoped, will import increas- ing quantities of manufactured goods contain- ing Canadian Nickel. Each product will help to pay for the other. Canada cannot keep on importing goods from other lands unless Canadian goods are exported. Less than three per cent of the Nickel produced in Canada is consumed in Canada. So we must continue to export Canadian Nickel if we are to continue to employ thousands of Canadians in the Nickel mines, smelters and refineries, and other thousands who produce the lumber, power, steel, machinery and supplies used by the Canadian Nickel industry. By constantly expanding the use of Nickel at home and abroad, the Canadian Nickel industry brings additional benefits to Canada and Canadians.
