Mr. Speaker, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food demonstrated his word is meaningless when it comes to food safety issues.
While he originally committed to implement all the Weatherill recommendations, the minister has now admitted the government has never done the critical audit called for in the Weatherill report.
That report called for a third party audit of CFIA inspection resources which includes an examination of how many plants each inspector should be responsible for.
Why has the government not acted on this key recommendation? Is it because it could show government neglect on food safety?
