“Having this in my backyard ruins everything about why we moved out here in the first place.”

In my previous post I told you about the Trump Administration deal with China to supply Montana beef to China. To facilitate the deal, a Chinese company will build a huge feedlot and slaughter plant in the state—to hell with destroying the environment and disrupting the cultural make-up of Montana with migrant/refugee labor!
Now, we see that a Canadian company is one step ahead of the Chinese and trying to get its piece of Montana too!
From the Great Falls Tribune (hat tip: Caroline):
A prominent Albertan livestock production and animal nutrition corporation filed an application within Cascade County to develop Montana’s largest slaughterhouse and meat processing plant on the outskirts of Great Falls.
If approved and constructed as described within a Special Use Permit (SUP) application filed with the Cascade County Planning Division, the proposed “Madison Food Park” complex could employ up to 3,000 people, exporting thousands of tons of meat to consumer markets throughout North America.
“The scope and scale of the proposed Madison Food Park (MFP) property and project will include, when complete, a state-of-the-art, robotically controlled, environmentally friendly, multi-species food processing plant for cattle, pigs and chickens and the related further processing facilities for beef, pork and poultry,” a Friesen Foods response to the special use application states.
Pie-in-the-sky” proposals for mass employment generating business enterprises are not uncommon, with varying degrees of reliability, but the prospects for the development of a Madison Food Park seem fairly reliable. [There is no doubt that they will be importing laborers—ed]
The Friesen family of businesses have been operating in Alberta for the past two decades. From a livestock production enterprise, the corporation has expanded to include meat processing and animal nutrition divisions.
Not mentioned in that article or this subsequent one ,where citizens are voicing concerns about their neighborhood near Great Falls, is the impact on the community from cheap migrant labor.
Just ask any town that has seen what BIG MEAT, BIG CHICKEN OR BIG YOGURT has done, and is doing, to break up community cohesiveness. See Amarillo, TX, St. Cloud, MN, Greeley and Ft. Morgan, CO and Twin Falls, ID to name just a few. (Search RRW for each of those cities.)
Did all of these globalist food companies get together at Davos and listen to Mr. Chobani Yogurt? Hire more refugees!
Open a food processing company in America and the US State Department, at taxpayers’ expense, will provide you with cheap and compliant refugee labor and others with worker visas (and eventually the R’s will cave and grant amnesty to additional migrants)! American taxpayers will educate their kids and supplement their wages with healthcare/welfare/food stamps etc. When citizens complain, get the do-gooders to call them racists and haters. What a business model!
According to this story at Montana Public Radio, there isn’t enough beef being produced in Montana to justify this big plant, so how does that jive with the subsequent Chinese deal? Will they be competing? Photo above is from Montana Public Radio.
By the way, the tiny town of Nickerson, Nebraska killed a plan last year to open a chicken processing plant there. The citizens were concerned about the impact on the environment, but also raised the issue of refugee labor overrunning the town.
And, don’t miss Canada planning to welcome a million migrants to the country over next couple of years, so why don’t they keep their polluting meat plant on their side of the border? All those low-skilled refugees (the new younger replacement Canadians!) will need some place to work!
