Imported pork products

Feb 18, 2012 | 13:04 1 I see that our local co-op is selling pork back-ribs this week on sale. I see that they are stamped product of Finland.

Why are we selling these in Canada when many of our own producers have had to shut down in the past few years because of a glut of pork and low hog prices? Now that our producers are getting back into production as the market improves we see these imports competing against our domestic production.

When Stockwell Day was Foreign Trade Minister did his tinkering with some Mini-Free Trade Agreements over in Europe encourage these cheap imports? I understand that he did ink some minor agreements with a handful of countries. Reply With Quote

Mar 2, 2012 | 19:33 3 I tried some of those imported pork back-ribs. First thing I noticed was when they started to cook...yep you guessed it BOAR taint. Knock a maggot off a gut wagon. anyway I knew that the pork was edible and the taste was bareable. Never again with that crap though...I'll stick with our own pork. Reply With Quote

castration of male hogs. Most of them
are vegans, so they could care less about
boar taint. Reply With Quote
