Quebec Halal Meat
March 15, 2012 by staff
Quebec Halal Meat, Following in the footsteps of France, some Quebecers are starting to worry that halal meat is increasingly being sold to consumers without their knowledge.
Framing the issue once again within the divisive debate over how far Quebecers must go to accommodate religious minorities, the Parti Québécois on Wednesday complained that people should know if the meat they’re buying has been slaughtered according to Islamic ritual.
Quebec is “losing control” over this issue, the PQ’s agriculture critic told reporters.
“Religious slaughter is legal, but it must remain the exception,” André Simard said. “However, it has become the rule.”
Simard, in a statement, added, “This type of slaughter collides head on with Quebecers’ values.”
The politician denounced the fact that the province’s food inspection agency had no information on the volume of halal and kosher production, the amount consumed, imported and exported.
Halal meat comes from animals that have been killed according to Islamic norms. The animal is bled by cutting its throat, accompanied by an Islamic prayer.
