Maple Leaf Foods has announced that they will be closing down its Warmen Road location.

The move was a result of Maple Leaf Foods announcing the expanding of both Brandon and Lagimodiere Road locations.

Though 650 Winnipegers will become unemployed with the move, 1100 jobs will open up at the other expanded locations.

A plan is in place for the 650 workers at Warmen Road. But since the Lagimodiere will not be expanding as big as the Brandon location, it doesn’t look like all 650 workers will be able to come to an agreement.
