That if spent for Canadian-made boots, would keep six big shoe factories busy the year employing altogether about 2400 hands, paying out in wages, and supporting, in'! abotit people. Concentrate all these people in one place and you add to the map of Canada a good live town like Amherst or Gait or Lethbridge. Rather startling isn't it? When out of 'pure thoughtlessness, you buy an imported boot you crunch under your heel the opportunity to .build up such a town. In buying Canadian-made shoes you are paying for quality, not duty.
