Local Meat Production and Inspection

-What’s currently working well in the local meat production industry in BC?

-How can it be improved to better serve local farmers, producers, processors, restauranteurs and all British Columbians?

British Columbians are invited to participate in the consultation by presenting at a public hearing, making a written, audio or video submission, or completing an online survey. More information, including the discussion paper is available online.

VICTORIA – The all-party Select Standing Committee on Agriculture, Fish and Food opened its public consultation, and announced locations for their public hearings. The consultation questions are set out in a discussion paper, which was referred to the committee on April 24, 2018.

The newly established select standing committee is responsible for examining matters concerning agriculture, fish and food in British Columbia, and its first inquiry will focus on local meat production and inspection in British Columbia.

“Committee members are eager to learn more about meat production and inspection practices in our province,” said Ronna-Rae Leonard, committee chair. “Today is B.C. Beef Day. Where our food comes from is very important and we want to hear input directly from British Columbians on how to make improvements to our current system.”

“The committee wants to hear from local farmers, producers, processors, restaurateurs, consumers, and other British Columbians,” added Jackie Tegart, deputy chair. “The information collected through this consultation will directly inform the committee’s recommendations.”

British Columbians are invited to participate in the consultation by presenting at a public hearing, making a written, audio or video submission, or completing an online survey. More information, including the discussion paper is available online: www.leg.bc.ca/cmt/aff

The Convergence Series brings together widely varied streams of intellectual and spiritual knowledge within the context of open-heartedness. As converging creeks create a mighty river, this integration of different ways of knowing yields something that is stronger, deeper, and more complex than any single watercourse. Convergence wisdom is creative, rooted in relationship, and designed to change individuals, inspire communities, and help heal the world.

This year’s guest speakers are James Hoggan and Donna Macdonald.

Wide Spot is a project of the Turner Zion Pastoral Charge of The United Church of Canada. This program has been funded in part by the BC Conference ProVision Fund. Wide Spot has been developed by collaboration between Turner Zion and Heart’s Rest Retreats, one of a number of projects during the last ten years on which we have worked together. Heart’s Rest Retreats is a ministry of the Rev. Dr. Therese DesCamp and the Rev. George Meier.
