For handing the world’s largest producer of cereal products millions of taxpayer dollars.
Jeff Chow, Kellogg plant manager in Belleville, said his company has received “great support“ from the province of Ontario, the Quinte region and the City of Belleville. Chow said he can’t wait to start producing Kellogg products at the new plant.Well, actually you should thank the provincial Liberal government.
“Construction is well under way and we should be under operation by the fourth quarter of this year.“
When asked whether Kellogg will open with 100 employees as previously stated, Chow replied, “That is still being developed.“
Of course, if you have to bribe a manufacturer of anything to entice them to your city, it's only a matter of time before they find someone who can top your bid... or provide lots of amigos who'll work for peanuts.
Look what happened with Hershey in Smith Falls.
At least the community gets something back this time... unlike Dalton McGuinty's other recent payoff.
