Local beef

Dear editor:
I was excited to see the brochure included in your paper in last Wednesday’s edition of the Fort Frances Times. It was advertising M & M Meats.
Great? Wrong! I was checking through all the ads and found something very disheartening–“New York-striploin steaks; cut from government-inspected New Zealand PS (Premium Steer) beef.”
New Zealand? We are living in Canada and in the Rainy River District. We have premium beef right here in our own country, and in our own district. We are proud of the product that we produce–top quality, natural, and grown locally.
I hope that we can support our farmers first and not New Zealand.
