Agriculture committee  I do not have statistics on that, no.

September 21st, 2017Committee meeting

Jason McLinton

Agriculture committee  Yes, exactly. Our members take accessibility very seriously, so they engage in a number of programs. There are breakfast programs, for example. There are backpack programs for kids to bring food to school. Through most of our members, you can order food online. There's home deliv

Agriculture committee  Absolutely, yes. I don't know that the members would speak of it in terms of specifically “food security”, but it doesn't make good business sense to not have product to sell to consumers, so they have a number of vendors and a number of suppliers. Again, it depends on seasonalit

Agriculture committee  I agree very strongly. We do some of that work already with Health Canada. They're a wonderful partner with us in terms of producing materials. We're talking about social media and all this kind of stuff. We are enthusiastic partners about doing more of that.

Agriculture committee  If I may take that, Mr. Drouin, there's a role, obviously, for government to play, and there's a role for industry to play. Again, from a retail perspective, we have direct interface with the consumer, so we have a role to play in that as well. Your example is a really good one,

Agriculture committee  Thank you, Ms. Brosseau. Well, I'm in a position to comment from a retail perspective, as opposed to a food bank perspective. Every one of the members I represent has partnerships with food banks, and every one of them I've spoken to has said that the food banks are not equipped

September 21st, 2017Committee meeting

Jason McLinton

Agriculture committee  Thank you, Ms. Nassif. Let me start by saying that food waste is an absolute critical priority for every one of the Retail Council of Canada's members. It isn't only the right thing to do from a consumer perspective, it also financially doesn't make sense to be losing product,

September 21st, 2017Committee meeting

Jason McLinton

Agriculture committee  I will answer your question from a food trade perspective. I believe we have 10 grocery members. They prefer to define themselves as independent members as opposed to small and medium enterprises. Exactly how we define that is challenging, but roughly a half, maybe five of them

September 21st, 2017Committee meeting

Jason McLinton

Agriculture committee  Mr. Chair, members of the committee, thank you for giving me the opportunity to discuss a food policy for Canada with you. I want to begin by saying that the RCC is highly supportive of an overarching food policy to provide direction when developing future Government of Canada p

Information & Ethics committee  That obviously would be individual business decisions by each member. I think that would be an interesting conversation to have. I obviously can't speak to any individual case, but in my mind any fine would not make any difference. The reputational damage and the threat of repu

Jason McLinton

Information & Ethics committee  I'll just say that if that is not going to be the case—because I understood that they were going to publish a report later in 2017—the main point there is that we believe in not throwing out the baby with the bathwater. The notion of consent, which is really a cornerstone of the

Jason McLinton

Information & Ethics committee  No, not anything that would be prescriptive.

June 1st, 2017Committee meeting

Jason McLinton

Information & Ethics committee  I'm personally not at all familiar with that, so I'd like to look into it. In terms of every conversation I've had with the members, they believe strongly in the idea of consent and reasonable consent: that their consumers would reasonably know how their information was being use

Information & Ethics committee  Mr. Chair, may I also provide a point of clarification on the response I gave earlier to one of Mr. Long's questions?
