Correspondence with CFIA

On Aug 24th 2023, the CCIPR Core team met with Anthony Anyia (Chief Plant Health Officer CFIA), Wendy Asbil (National Manager, Invasive Alien Species and Domestic Plant Health Programs) along with a Senior Risk Assessor, Program Specialists and a CFIA Policy Analyst to discuss our White Paper and our recommendations for reducing the sales of invasive plants. While the CFIA complemented our efforts, we were left with many unanswered questions. We send a follow-up letter to the CFIA summarizing observations on the status quo and requesting answers to many outstanding questions. We received answers to some of our questions following our presentation to the IAS National Committee. Some of that correspondence is shared below.
