Article from the Ottawa Citizen - Cute animals are just as delicious as ugly ones

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/life/Cute+animals+just+delicious+ugly+...

 

 

The discussions following this article are just about as interesting...... Not entirely surprising, but interesting.

 

I posted this article because I attended the Bruce Grey Politicians meeting in Chepstow on Saturday.  An excellent event hosted by the local Federation of Agriculture! 

 

Bill Murdock made a comment at the meeting, which I think is related to the message of article.  He was referring to the disconnect between the producers and the consumers.  He mentioned (in his own style) that you could say something really mean and nasty in "Toronto", but mention words such as "slaughter" and you would be run out of town!   I cant remember the exact words he used, but I think we have all encountered similar reactions to common agricultural terms and practices.

I noticed that Bill Murdock also said Toronto should separate from rural Ontario because rural people are losing to the Toronto mentality.....

Yes, he mentioned this at the meeting in Chepstow as well.....While at first , it seemed a bit extraordinary, the CBC article and radio reports noted that even the Toronto counsillors were in agreement (albeit for totally different reasons - their reasons were fiscal....) We shall see how it plays out.
