Mad Cow Crises is Still a Concern

As Alberta's and also some other provinces' economy is relied on beef industry, I listen to the TV news every night. Beef industry and related businesses like tracking, dairy, ranching and many many more is in jeopardy. The thing is Canadians think they are smart and claim they are a G8 country but see what they did to their cattle industry? The latest news shows that only 1 out of 3000 cows in Canada is tested for possible diseases!!!!!
Smart people!! Educated!! Civilized!! Genius!! Oceans of wisdom!! That's what Canadians are!! Traceability which is one of the requirements of ISO 9000:2000 standard is being performed by French in their slaughter floors. It was shown on CBC and I saw that every single piece and carcass has a paper attached like an I.D. card shows where the animal was born, when it was slaughtered and other useful information to find where the infection comes from if there's any.
