What's going on at XL Foods?

XL Foods says everything is now fine at its Brooks plant. The union representing the people who work there begs to differ.

“Workers at XL Foods in Brooks want to be part of the solution,” he said in a news release. “They’re going to be back at work in a few days, but nothing has been done to address the issues that led to this problem.”

Mr. O’Halloran, who has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon in Brooks, Alta., cited concerns relating to training for temporary foreign workers, line speed and a need to protect whistleblowers.

The NDP has just put out a news release reminding everyone that it thinks Gerry Ritz should resign.
