I saw the agricultural heavens open and heard the chicken angels clucking a chorus of “Hallelujah Bock Bock!” when I was informed the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission is going to investigate the operations of EFO. Will miracles never cease? Maybe Geri Kamenz will earn his six-figure salary when checking out Harry Pelissero and the boys and girls of the EFO Board of Directors – both past and present hopefully.
So does this mean that there was merit in those “unbelievable” emails between egg-gradier L.H. Gray and Son and EFO? (Remember those emails? Check them out here: http://agri007.blogspot.ca/2012/12/heres-scoop_7234.html). Is the EFO Board of Directors still standing behind its general manager and its policies and procedures? At the end of the investigation, how far behind the general manager will the Board be standing? I imagine there could be quite a distance of separation once the chicken poo starts to hit the fan. Maybe all those documents in the egg industry lawsuit are real and indicate collusion and numerous other problems with EFO? Or does it mean that finally, finally, finally somebody is listening and taking steps to make EFO accountable? In case it would help EFO, I would be willing to keep minutes of their meetings. Sure hope Harry calls soon.
