Here we are less than a year later and Bacardi has announced the closure of the Brampton facility throwing 51 people out of work. According to a statement provided to the Brampton Guardian, "Bacardi carefully considered all other options before making this decision, which was necessary due to the changing business environment over many years in Canada and the importance of increasing efficiency to ensure the company's future competitiveness."

Translation: Ontario is no longer a sensible place to do business!
