Anthony Nabuurs, head of the P.E.I. Hog Commodity Marketing Board, said the board didn't expect a meeting Tuesday night to provide all the answers, but he hoped it would at least be a start.

"I think it's time that we get producers in a room and have a discussion about what's going on, and also discuss the transition for the industry or whatever that we have been discussing for the last three months, long before this plant issue came up," he said.

"We're not going to have all the answers tonight, not by a long shot."

Last week, P.E.I. Premier Robert Ghiz announced there would be no new money for the Island's pork processor, leaving the future of P.E.I.'s only hog processing plant in jeopardy.
