FWIW, there were more, not less inspectors at XL Foods. Trouble is, they were obviously typical federal union members not doing their jobs and didn't catch the E. coli issue.

They were probably sleeping on sacks of rotten meat.

Agriculture minister’s assistant cuts short tainted meat press conference as agency head explains XL Foods delay | Canada | News | National Post

Quote:
Da Pont said Canadian inspectors asked for information from XL Foods Inc. on Sept. 6 about “critical points” where E. coli might become a problem, but didn’t get it right away.
I'm confused. So, the Canadian federal inspectors, had to get information from federal union inspectors at XL but there was a big delay?

Well how many inspectors are assigned to work at XL Foods previously and presently? Just so we know how large the increase of inspectors?

You will have to ask the federal minister such a question for the specifics. I take him at his word.

There are currently 40 unionized inspectors at the plant. There were 34 unionized inspectors at the plant in 2006. Each of them has the power to pull the plant's license if documentation is not handed over.

'unionized'. Canadian government inspectors, or XL employed inspectors.

I can't seem to find much info.

And the insinuation was made that it was the 'unionized inspectors' at XL who caused the delay. Is this so? The article says CIFA couldn't get the info from XL. So am I to believe this was the 'unionized inspector's' fault?

Hi Sinc, I think the point the minister was trying to hide was that the Canadian inspectors didn't find the e-coli. This bluster that it didn't get into the system is a croc, the U.S. guys inspected it as is normal, but our guys should have caught it such that it would never have left the plant. This begs the question, was there any product shipped that wasn't bound for the U.S., and if so who is checking that.

From what I see, it does little good asking this minister anything.
