Does not the minister think it a mistake to vest authority in at inspector to close a cannery if in his judgment it is not in a sanitary condition?

These inspectors are only human, they are not very highly paid, and it seems to me that this is altogether too great authority to put in their hands. Has the minister consulted with the canning interests in British Columbia in respect to this matter?
