Food safety culture and Canadian public health

This is a Huntsman spider.

About two weeks ago I woke up to find one on the wall, beside my head.

As I neared the end of a video talk about food safety culture at the annual gathering of the Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors about an hour ago, a gigantic Huntsman  appeared on the floor, headed toward the kitchen, where I was talking.

I told the assembled, hang on a sec, gotta kill a spider.

Everything’s bigger in Australia.

Always a pleasure to chat with my public health friends and frenemies, wherever they are, and at whatever time.

But I’m especially proud that Winnipeg public health inspector and K-State MS graduate Rob Mancini will be talking at the conference. His paper that formed the basis of his MS research will be published shortly.
