The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is not happy with comments made this week by the union representing Canada's meat inspectors.

President Bruce Archibald says it unnecessarily undermines the confidence in the country's food safety system.

A news release signed by Archibald says the agency is proud that Canada's food safety system has been rated Number 1 out of 17 countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development by the Conference Board of Canada.

Earlier this week, the Agriculture Union said a critical shortage of inspectors is putting the safety of consumers at risk across Canada.

The C-F-I-A says claims that food safety activities have been cut in northern Alberta are false.


Quite an honour for Anne MacInnes of Ripley

He is one of three people to receive the Ontario 4-H Sygenta Award, for outstanding community service.

MacInnes has been a 4-H leader in Bruce County for 20 years -- and has led numerous clubs and volunteered at many 4-H Ontario events.

She is also active with the agricultural society and fall fair in Ripley as well as other community groups.

MacInnes also works with the Pine River Watershed Initiative Network -- and the group has helped plant up to 5 thousand new trees each year.
