Food Network Canada – Reality Check Required! | Canadian Horse Defence Coalition's Blog
There has recently been a huge controversy on horse meat caused by an episode of Canada's Top Chef featuring the preperation and eating of horse meat. Tons of people (not just horsie people) were outraged about this as horse is not a "meal" in general North America and rioted hard to stop the episode from airing. The episode did end up airing and as a result of this, President's Choice (a large food company out of Extra Foods, No Frills, Superstore) starting selling and advocating the buying of horse meat. Anybody else hear of this??
Now I personally found this controversy so interesting (mainly because I'm a horse nut haha) and decided to research, report and study the human consumption of horse meat for one of my university research classes. I found a crazy amount of information and I really think what I found will shock you guys! I do want to get some of your opinions and use it in my research paper (if that's okay of course!) so I want to see what you guys think of eating horse meat before I share my research and viewpoint on it.
So before I share what I found...would you eat horse meat if given the chance?
