"The industrial cities of Lachute and Brownsburg. This film describes the different activities and enterprises of these cities including the Lachute newspaper, 'The Watchman', edited by J.S. Giles."


"Business in Motion: Films of Current Interest," Canadian Business 23 (June 1950): 74.
"Lachute, Quebec, where the Ayers woolen mills are located, is a typical small industrial town. In showing what one company and its employees have contributed to this community, the film is merely telling a story that could be duplicated in a hundred other Canadian towns and cities. In other words, it reproduces one important pattern of national life."

"[Associated Screen News Ad.]," Canadian Business 23 (June 1950): 74.
"Good neighbour enterprising neighbour; as a good neighbour, managements chats with other members of the community, so they understand the philosophy which dictates its enterprise. Thus is woven the public and industrial relations story of 'Neighbours in Enterprise' for Ayers Limited.
