Mr. Speaker, there is no such thing as a self-regulating system in Canada. CFIA has a number of different jobs it performs in these plants every day. The particular plant in question has 46 professional CFIA staff, which is a 20% increase over just a few years ago.
We take this very seriously. We are working to ensure that CFIA has the regulations it requires and the monetary capacity to get the job done.
I am hopeful that the NDP will work with us in the future.
