Halal Slaughter Causing a Furor In Quebec
MARCH 15, 2012
I think the issue stems from this being an Islamic practice and the fear of contaminated meat, not concern for the animals. Two political parties in Quebec are speaking out about the ritual slaughter of animals, but a Jewish advocacy group is confident that kashrut is not being targeted. The opposition Parti Québécois and the Coalition For Quebec's Future declared their concerns about halal meat, which comes from animals that are slaughtered according to Islamic law.
