No More Quebec-Bashing

Go here:  Ontario hippophagy  page 15

This is from a gourmet food magazine published in 2005*.  There are so many errors in it about horsemeat that I have to report it here.   Like all good gourmets (that’s “gourmet”, not “gourmand”), they suggest the proper wine to go-with.   Tragically, a Quebec abattoir provides for this clearly upscale market in Ontario:  once again, Quebec is the lapdog of others who furtively buy their product while openly maligning the supplier province.  One of the points I made to a fellow horse advocate this week was that you can’t come in Quebec’s back door, take videos of our abattoirs, and then stand aside remotely with your arms folded and watch our reaction.  It’s akin to your neighbour telling you that you have a dead rat in your backyard and then, offering no help at all, watching you try to deal with it.  I think they got the point:  there’s more French in their material than I’ve ever seen before (though no links but they’ll come around). I try not to engage in internecine or intramural squabbling whenever I can, but I am always made aware (especially when dealing outside Quebec) that I am not “white”, and “ethnics with money” are not welcome at the meetings; they’re only welcome at the accountant’s office.  For my part, I try to stay focused on the horses, whatever is going on.

We need help here.  Distancing yourself from what happens in Quebec just because we speak a different language is not a valid (or useful) option to pursue in the saving of our horses.  Anyway, I think this hedonistic nonsense below speaks for itself.

They Eat Horses, Don’t They?

Quit your squirming. The French don’t seem to mind
