Partnership with Hutterites announced.


Unconfirmed, unreliable, fictional sources claim Thomas Mulcair stopped in at the Birch River Hutterite colony to announce a new federal partnership to reopen the Campbell soup plant in Portage la Prairie.

Locally grown Hutterite Beets will be processed at the new plant. Hutterite Omas will employ their secret recipes to create the delectable dish for the world market.

“I think this proves Mulcair and the NDP give a borscht about bringing jobs to Portage, ” said Portage la Prairian and labour leader, Erin Gobraless.

“People like borsht.  I like borscht.  It’s the beets.  They taste good and give soup a slight blood colour.”
