I haven't eaten that garbage in a long time, but, it seems that it'll get worse?

UNREAL------CANADIAN BEEF..??

THIS IS FROM LAKESIDE PACKERS XL MEATS WHO TOOK THE TIME TO WRITE THIS AND
HE SIGNED THE STATEMENT INCLUDING HIS CONTACT INFO:

I'm sure those of you who aren't in the cattle business don't understand the
issues here. But to those of us whose living depends on the cattle market,
selling cattle, raising the best beef possible...This is frustrating.

This will keep us from ever stopping there again, even for a drink.

The original message is from the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association.

Canadian cattle producers are very passionate about this.

McDonald's claim there is not enough beef in Canada to support their restaurants.
Well, we (ACFA) know that is not so. Our opinion is they are looking to save
money at our expense. The sad thing of it is that the people of Canada are the
ones who made McDonald's successful in the first place, but we are not good enough
to provide the beef.

We personally are no longer eating at McDonald's, which I am sure does not make an
impact, but if we pass this around maybe there will be an informed impact felt.

All Canadians that sell cattle at a livestock auction barn have to sign a paper
stating that we do NOT EVER feed our cattle any part of another animal... South
Americans are not required to do this as of yet.

McDonald's has announced that they are going to start importing much of their beef
from South America . The problem is that South Americans aren't under the same
regulations as Canadian beef producers, and the regulations they have are loosely
controlled.

They can spray numerous pesticides on their pastures that have been banned here at
home because of residues found in the beef. They can also use various hormones and
growth regulators that we can't. The Canadian public needs to be aware of this problem
and that they may be putting themselves at risk from now on by eating at McDonald's.

Canadian ranchers raise the highest quality beef in the world and this is what Canadians
deserve to eat. Not beef from countries where quality is loosely controlled. Therefore,
I am proposing a boycott of McDonald's until they see the light.

For me, everything is not always about the bottom line when it comes to jeopardizing my
family's health, that is where I draw the line.

I am sending this note to about 30 people.
If each of you send it to at least 10 more
(30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ...
and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have
reached over THREE MILLION consumers!

I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you?
Acting together we can make a difference. If this makes sense to you,
please pass this message on.

Yeah I thought that sounded fishy, it would have definitely been front page and lead story on every channel tv news.

We don't go to McD's either way. Not since the Temporary Foreign Workers uproar a few years ago where they were importing and screwing workers from outside the country while local students and seniors couldn't get a job with them. Besides, we like A&W's burgers better.
