Jack Knox: Slaughterhouse benefit is a meaty issue on Saltspring
Unfortunately, the link to the Times Colonist column by Jack Knox on the fundraising done by Salt Spring farmers is gone. But the fundraising is still ongoing, as they march towards their goal to raise enough for a local mobile slaughter facility that will take care of beef, lamb, pork and poultry needs for the island. As a fellow Gulf Islander, I am cheering them on. I am also hoping that my smaller island of Pender can also use this facility on wheels for our own use. As ferry costs go up - and we recently heard they are going up again - it will be more and more important for each island to be more resilient and self supporting.
