Lamb meat safety Farmers on Saltspring Island say slaughtering their lambs off-island does not make their meat any safer, the CBC's Justine Ma reports

CBC visited Margaret Thomson and Sandy Robley on Salt Spring Island, to learn about the impact of the meat regulations on communities without their own slaughter facilities.  CBC also visited Campbell Farm on the particular day that I took my lambs to be slaughtered on Saturna Island.  The audio, from The Early Edition, has a longer interview with Sandy, Jacques and Margaret.  Click on the link above to see the video and hear the audio, as well as read the comments on the piece.
