Shots of workers harvesting a crop of tobacco; curing it in a kiln; transporting it to the manufacturer; processing the crop; packaging and marketing. Good stock shots of Mounties on Parliament Hill; a Royal Mail delivery truck; the Dominion Experimental Farm; Supreme Court of Canada; and the Bank of Canada."
