Another quickie update on the status of the Safe Food for Canadians Act: earlier this week the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food completed its review of the Bill.
During that stage of the legislative process, members of the Committee examined the fine points of the draft legislation, listened to witnesses give their opinions on the bill (I should definitely blog about that process sometime soon – I’ve read some of the debates and lets just say they were HEATED!), and then considered it clause-by-clause study based on the testimony.
The Bill is now being referred back to the House of Commons for third (and final!) reading. I suspect things will move quickly from here, especially in light of the recent XL tragedy. I’ll keep you posted.
