    Some Canadian firms own the brand names out right and they say they'll continue to produce them while licking their chops that the American market will open up for them!!

    Still doesn't help the American workers who are once again getting Royally Screwed by the reagan {Bain} style capitalism!!

      Snack giant Hostess shuttering US business, but Canada unaffected

      In Canada, Saputo Inc., the country’s largest snack cake maker, and George Weston Ltd. already own the rights to some Hostess brands.

      Weston’s senior vice-president of investor relations, Geoffrey Wilson, said the company is not interested in any Hostess assets that might come up for sale.

      But Weston is keen on continued investment in and marketing of Wonder Bread, for which it owns the Canadian rights, rights that are not affected by events south of the border, he said.

      “It’s a very good seller. It’s a very important brand to us,” he said.
