E-coli in Water; E-coli in Beef

CBC’s The Current focused on the E-coli-tainted beef recall and featured Bruce Davidson from Walkerton speaking about the same strain of e-coli that infected the town’s drinking water in 2000. Walkerton and Brockton have held rain barrel sales for several years as part of their water stewardship program of advocacy and education. In the broadcast, Bruce focused on looking for changes and results in any enquiries rather than finding blame in the beef recall. Bruce says “our community thrives today…because we tackled this problem head-on [and Walkerton has become] a bastion of knowledge about the safety of drinking water “, sharing this knowledge across Canada. We hope Canada learns from the current recall too. Listen to The Current episode HERE
