toobsok: Okay, I don't like her or the Wildrose, but this was blown way out of proportion. She wasn't saying "feed poors tainted beef (wooohh oh oh tainted beef)", she was stating that she thought you could cook out the e.coli and not waste the beef, which CFIA didn't think was possible in this case.

She was wrong and had words put into her mouth, admitted her stupidity, and everybody moves on.


Stop trying to be reasonable!

mtbhucker: bratface: How is dumping it in a landfill any safer? That will not kill the toxin. What happens when other animals (rats, birds, etc.) eat the tainted beef and spread the toxin back into the food chain?

IIRC the beef is being buried in large sealed clay containers that are then buried.


And someday, long after this is all forgotten, future archeologists will find these sealed tombs full of meat and think they've unearthed Shub-Niggurath.

mtbhucker: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: [www.cbc.ca image 460x259]

She posed a question, not a suggestion.

Is Abe Vigoda's Ghost a pony feltcher?

I'm just asking questions here!


One pony. Geesh, will people ever give that a rest.

Mantour: DerAppie: Okay, but we still haven't gotten an answer. Does cooking the meat kill the bacteria?

No. Not if it is the O157:H7 strain, which causes "hamburger's disease". It is also the strain that caused death in the Walkerton Tragedy.

Verotoxin-producing E.Coli


Okay. Check for the strain and then decide whether or not to trash it. I'd buy it if it wasn't the toxin producing strain. I'm recently graduated so I haven't developed high food standards yet.

/No idea what this "Walkerton Tragedy" is

oldfarthenry: I really wish there had been small red hubcaps on that bus. I'm sure others felt the same way.


She's a right winger, so in true Canadian political fashion, they filter out anything that makes sense or is reasonable until it says what they read want to read.

They want to claim she was trying to poison the homeless like an evil biatch and not looking for a way to provide them with food because right wingers are all supposed to be evil American republican caricatures, so obviously she wasn't suggesting we help the poor.

You see the same thing from opposite ends though not as much because aver 12 years of liberal rule, the State owned media (CBC) is staked with liberal supporters.

You'll notice that although the CBC was screaming about Harper eating kittens he still got one of the largest popular votes ever, so basically the loudest stupidest Canadians get air time, while the silent majority is face palming like the rest of us. Until we stop rewarding derpitude the trend will continue.

If Harper gets voted out this coming election, the loud idiots will think it's because of their gibbering, not because he's been pissing off the average Canadian. For that to happen though the NDP and Liberals need to grow the fark up and start acting like adults, because creepy Harper is still the best of the 3 options.

Did you read the article or just jump to a conclusion based on the headline?

And Alberta has Mexicans. They're called Newfies.

I can't =(.

It seems like every Alberta thread people are reaching for reasons to hate the Wildrose and Conservatives. There are legitimate reasons, and this isn't one of them. I hate this sort of discourse.

I must be missing something. Her statement was logical. If the meat can be cooked to kill any E.Coli, but was instead thrown out, it would have been better utilized to feed the hungry. You can argue that it was not worth taking the chance, but that does not make her a Biatch.

DerAppie: Does cooking the meat kill the bacteria

E. coli bacteria can survive in the refrigerator and freezer, and it can multiply rapidly in the refrigerator, making E. coli particularly difficult to manage. E. coli will also survive in highly acidic environments, which is also unusual for most food-borne pathogens. They are killed by cooking, however, so the best prevention against E. coli is to heat foods to 160°F or hotter for at least 30 seconds. That means burgers should not be served rare.


Yeah, but it might insult some hobo so we should turn those animals directly into garbage so their deaths were for absolutely no reason.
