Dear Earls: your beef dilemma is already solved

!A decision by Vancouver based Earls restaurant chain to begin sourcing its beef from the U.S. instead of Canada generated a huge reaction. The chain, with 65 locations in Canada and the U.S., stated their reason to buy from the U.S. was to serve beef that is raised and slaughtered humanely, and to do that, they had to go south of the border.  After the backlash this generated from Canadian consumers and cattle producers they have since reversed their decision and are once again buying Canadian beef. - Margaret Houben
