 Basically, the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) accuses the current Conservative government of dropping the ball and lowering food safety standards from previous governments, as well as taking no action on the listeria outbreak to prevent similar problems elsewhere.

    And of course other than CBC, the main stream media doesn’t cover this pretty sensational and huge story!

    CBC continues to report on the ongoing problems with the CFIA under the Conservative Government. Now Hershey’s has had Salmonella containing chocolate stolen. Chocolate that the CFIA had not had destroyed in over a year after finding out about it! Initially just Toronto, now appears the Salmonella containing candy has reached elsewhere in Canada.
