Men­non­ites pos­i­tive as­sets

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Al­lan Weeks Real Es­tate says a num­ber of Men­non­ites fam­i­lies are look­ing at buy­ing farms on P.E.I. and will be a pos­i­tive as­set for our beef plant. They like P.E.I. for ex­pan­sion be­cause land is much cheaper here as com­pared to land costs in On­tario. Mr. Weeks plans on see­ing them again at the Lon­don Farm Show in March and make some deals if they de­cide to re­lo­cate to the Is­land. Men­non­ites are ex­cel­lent farm­ers and will be an as­set to any ru­ral com­mu­nity and will add to Is­land cul­ture. They are wel­come here be­cause some Is­land farm­ers want to sell and re­tire. Mr. Weeks should be re­warded for his hard work. David Steeves, Char­lot­te­town
