Question Period

October 5, 2012

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz faces an onslaught of accusations related to the recall of E. coli–tainted beef processed at the XL Foods plant in Brooks, Alta. Questions focus on the two-week gap between the revocation of the company’s United States exporter licence on September 13, 2012, and the eventual suspension of its Canadian licence on September 27th.

The government also responds to allegations of cuts to funding for non-Christian religious services in federal prisons.
