Horsemeat in Edmonton?
Where can I get it, if anywhere. I'd prefer never frozen, which might be possible as it's processed in the province, but I'll settle for whatever I can get.
I already tried Sobey's, where they said they could look into it and call me, but I haven't heard back.
I also tried the Italian Centre, but I just got a no and a dirty look.
According to this slightly old article we have two horse slaughtering facilities in Alberta. http://www.netposse.com/slaughter/Canada_Slaughter_Article.pdf
This is the lacombe plant that does horse meat: http://www.cpmeats.com/index.htm
and there is one in Fort. Macloud: BOUVRY EXPORT CALGARY LTD. Those are the federally inspected meat plants that are allowed to butcher horses. You could probably give them a call for a referal to one of their clients who deals in horse meat.
Most of it's exported though. I'll admit it isn't something I'd eat in Canada, although I might try it where it is more culturally acceptable. When in Rome...
