Editor: Re: “Easter backs fight to keep CFIA in Borden-Carleton”, The Guardian (Charlottetown), July 29, 2014:
I would like to clarify some points regarding the closure of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s Borden-Carleton office.
As part of regional restructuring plans, the CFIA still intends to move staff from the Borden-Carleton office to other regional offices in Charlottetown and Summerside. The move is scheduled to take place in January 2015.
This will result in more efficient operations within P.E.I. and will provide more resource depth and flexibility, resulting in more responsive service to industry.
The services provided by this office will continue and there will be no loss of jobs as a result of this move.
The CFIA enjoys an excellent relationship with the P.E.I. potato industry and we will continue to work closely together.
