This past Friday, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) posted this following on its Twitter feed @InspectionCan: “We want to hear from you! We’re seeking comments from Canadians on a proposed change to the size of diced white #potatoes sold in cans. Our consultation is open until February 21, 2022. Check out the proposed change: https://bit.ly/3FPeoTy“
The response from Twitter was swift and ongoing – many of the replies ridiculing the agency for wasting time and money on what some Twitter users believe to be a rather trivial matter, especially at this particular time. Other Tweets are dripping with sarcasm. We post some of the replies to CFIA below.
Really? This is what you want to hear from Canadians about? Solve the PEI potato crisis and then let’s talk about the size of diced friggin potatoes
We have become the EU. Except that in the EU these kind of childish expenditures can be amortized across 300 plus million people. In Canada we only have roughly 38 million people to bear the burden of this absurdity.
We are a very serious country with strong priorities…
