Ethical Eggs and Pork at Calgary Co-op

This story may be of interest to Just Living's participants, in view of our discussion about purchasing ethically produced food.  During Wednesday's AGM, the majority of Calgary Co-op members voted in favour of their grocery store selling cage-free pork and eggs.  The vote was sparked by a motion from one of the members, who said most consumers don't realize the conditions surrounding what they're buying.  "For the hens", he  said, "not even space to properly extend their wings and for the pork, the sows can only take one step forward, one step back."  More details here
