Friends of Grain Elevators

Voice of the month


Victor Bel

Inspector: Canadian Food Inspection

Victor Bel worked as an inspector with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Although he swore he'd never work inside of a grain elevator, he became what he calls the “bug man” –a career that regularly had him crawling around ships hulls and elevators to guarantee bug-free grain shipments.

In this interview, Vic takes us on a tour from elevator to elevator on Thunder Bay’s waterfront, recalling his adventures and sometimes very dangerous work. It is truly one of our most intriguing and interesting interviews.
