In a previous Blog posting (see Turkey Trauma ), we described the loss of an important, small abattoir-butcher shop in Millbrook NS, run by Gordon Fraser. We described how the supply of turkey poults (young turkeys) to small flock turkey farmers has been cut off from Larkin Bros. in PEI. With no source of poults, and nowhere to get your fully grown turkey butchered, the small flock turkey farmers of Nova Scotia have been totally stranded and beached on the rocky shore of Supply Management. The Turkey Mafia have done their dirty work very successfully. They made no coup de grace, but indirectly made the fatal blows that will cause the withering on the vine. A sneak attack from the rear.
In support of our brothers and sisters in Nova Scotia, SFPFC has written a number of letters to call attention to this mean spirited attack by the Turkey Mafia.
Here are copies of the letters we sent so all to see:
Email 1: To the Liberal Government of Nova Scotia (Premier, Minister of Health, Minister of Agriculture), and local MLA Karla MacFarlane, PC
Email 2: To News 95.7 FM (Halifa NS), thanks for their news coverage of Turkey Trauma in NS
Email 3: Request for additional Ag. News coverage of Turkey Trauma in NS
Email 4: To MLA Karla MacFarlane (PC), Pictou West NS
What more can we do to expose these insideous, indirect attacks on the small flock turkey farmers of Nova Scotia?
While Nova Scotia's small flock turkey farmers are under attack today, don't think that this is the end of the SM Mafia's attack on Small Flockers. If you breath a sigh of relief that you have escaped their persecution, think again. Political apathy will seal our fate.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
