Montreal, Canada - In the wake of the discovery that repackaged non-kosher chickens were being sold as kosher by a Monsey, N.Y., store, Montreal’s main kashrus certifying organization is immediately requiring full-time mashgiachs at all establishments under its supervision that handle meat.  Rabbi Saul Emanuel, director of the Vaad Ha’ir, said its mashgiachs will be present at all times at every phase of distribution from the slaughterhouse until the meat is in the hands of consumers, without exception.  The mashgiachs must be employees of the Vaad. Under the existing system, the supervised establishments pay the cost of the mashgiachs to the Vaad, which then pays the mashgiachs directly.

At least one city cares about kashrus enough to invest in this idea. Especially because Montreal has one of the buther's sons living there.
