Eye on costs

Manitoba hog producers worried about costs of changes to building codes.

The activist group Canadians for the Ethical Treatment of Food Animals supports stricter industry-wide building codes, saying thousands of animals have died over the years in hog barn fires.

But while the animal rights group says contemplated changes to the code don’t go far enough — Manitoba’s hog producers say while they’re to make changes, they also have to keep an eye on costs.

“If we put the cost too high then you’re going to put the producers out of business,” said Manitoba Pork Council chairman Karl Kynoch.
