"In a case for democracy the agricultural and industrial resources in the Niagara area are presented by a trip through the Peninsula. The film extolls the virtues and advantages of the free enterprise system by placing on exhibit the manner in which one particular Canadian industry treats its employees. it suggests this is the Canadian way, not one isolated example. The film follows one employee at work and at home to show the free enterprise system in operation."
