Canada courts Chinese in big meat market

The odour of tripe cooking in the markets of Kowloon is enough to turn the stomach of long-time cattleman Brad Wildeman, president of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association.

"I am a farm kid, I've butchered animals. I cannot see me eating that," said Saskatchewan resident Mr. Wildeman, who was in Hong Kong last week on a trade mission from Ottawa.

The cattle chief also scents opportunity here in Asia's street markets, where vendors boil and fry parts of the cow most Canadians won't touch and all manner of offal hangs from the hooks in the butchers' stores.
