I am currently employed by a Metro (chain of grocery stores in Ontario and Quebec) and work in the deli department. Our store just switched from A&P to Metro, and I just found out something interesting online that I was unaware of previously. Metro sells horse meat. I was shocked too. I was also unaware that it is legal to slaughter horses and distribute the meat in Quebec. I did not find that much information on the laws in Canada (sorry that I'm a bit under informed) only that it is frowned upon in areas such as Alberta where racing and breeding is popular. Is this not illegal in Canada? Now I have an ambivalence issue; clearly, whether the store I work at sells it or not, I do NOT want anything to do with a company that sells horse meat and support such a barbaric act. The other side of my ambivalence is that I need the money and it is a great job. I get time off for horse shows no problem and make good money with flexible hours. I don't think a letter to Metro is going to stop them and the whole province of Quebec or the country, for that matter. Can anyone tell me a bit more about horse slaughter/meat distribution rules in Canada? What would you do if you were me?! This is disturbing and when I came upon it I was bawling, but if you go to http://www.metro.ca and go to "Meat Counter" or something of that relevance, it will show that they infact distribute horse meat and supply recipes and how to find the best "foal meat". :flaming: Like I said, just reading the recipes and cooking instructions made me break down... Any info and advice is appreciated!
