The big beef

OTTAWA — Mark Tijssen and his church friends worry about the quality of animals that end up in the commercial food chain.

The Ottawa area group, which jokingly calls itself the Christian Meat Cutters Association, refuses to have anything to do with what they say is Canada’s listeriosis-plagued meat processing industry, so each November they pool their funds and personally select a few locally-grown, healthy beef cattle at a livestock auction in Greely. Their only concession to the beef industry is to allow a trusted and licensed slaughterhouse owner to kill and butcher the animals, leaving them with legally-inspected quarters of meat to share.

We weren't expecting the Canadian Inquisition.

NOBODY expects the Canadian Inquisition.
