With 11 people now confirmed sick from E. coli O157 linked to XL beef, and the plant wanting to reopen, the whole incident demonstrates the rise of mediocrity in Canada.
Strive to be excellently OK.
And that’s not good enough for people who got sick, especially the little kids.
And the Canadian Food Inspection Agency? They’re going to do a walk through of the plant, apparently with magic goggles that can see bacteria, as part of a “pre-resumption of operation inspection.”
This is systemic failure all around.
This is the rise of mediocrity.
