Off The Hook?

Here I sit a good 10 days following the initial national Maple Leaf Listeriosis tainted meat scandal, a situation that continues to grow more serious with each passing day. In terms of an ever mounting tainted product list. So today I’m faced with a seemingly connected string of concerns.

First my Grandfather. Yes still. I’ve yet to hear why he fell so ill and, as of Wednesday, when I last saw him, was still not feeling right. He’s back at “home,” sure, which should be a good thing, but he’s still feeling the effects of whatever made him sick in the first place…

Secondly the head of Maple Leaf (I’m hesitant to call him a CEO simply because I’m unaware if Maple Leaf is a “publicly” traded company) came out a couple days ago and stated “the buck stops here,” I believe were his words, relating to where blame needs to be placed for the ugly debacle. As opposed to the federal government? 

But I heard on CP24 earlier this week that the government recently gave an amount of authority to Maple Leaf to “police” themselves. So yes Michael McCain not only do you share a name with a glorious piece of shit but you are, indeed responsible for what happened. Exactly how does that let the government off the hook? Because they put a bunch of half-wits in charge of a job they apparently couldn’t handle? Interesting logic…

I’m so tempted to say if you got Listeriosis from eating meat it’s your own fault, but I won’t…

Which, lastly brings me to the point by which I’m most concerned with. That is our government is adopting policies and practices eerily similar to that of a bunch of needledicks (Thanks to the Rod for clarification of the term) to the south of us. Is that what we have to look forward to?
