John Kinder Labatt was the founder of Labatt Breweries more than 150 years ago in London, Ontario. A Canadian institution, Labatt employs more than 3,200 Canadians from Newfoundland to British Columbia.

During the second World War, The John Labatt Limited Garage, used to service the company's fleet of famous streamliner trucks was operated as the Army Mechanics Trade School to train members of Canada's forces in motor mechanics and machine shop skills. Labatt's staff of expert mechanics provided the training. Labatt played a major role in Canada's Victory Bond campaigns.
