In an extensive investigative project, Fred Vallance-Jones discovered that the system that was meant to protect the public's heath through food inspection and restaurant safety had failed in Hamilton, Ontario. After analyzing the restaurant inspection database, reporters from the Spectator found that several restaurants had been violating health conditions for years without punishment from the environmental health department, while city inspectors repeatedly failed to inspect certain restaurants. Because of the series that ran in the Spectator the city of Hamilton hired two full-time premise inspectors, ordered a full report on city inspections, and formation of a system to make food handler training mandatory.
