Food inspectors' union head says 17 federal departments face potentially deadly cuts



    OTTAWA, Oct. 8 /CNW Telbec/ - The listeriosis outbreak that's killed 20
Canadians could be "the tip of the iceberg" for food safety and risks from
other federal cutbacks, says Agriculture Union President Bob Kingston.
    He told www.publicvalues.ca CFIA cutbacks, which contributed to the
outbreak, were more moderate than those planned by the government for other
departments.
    "There may be 17 other documents floating around" like the one detailing
CFIA cuts, which biologist Luc Pomerleau was fired for leaking.
