Boycott Earls Restaurants UPDATE: “Our first bit of good news”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

Yesterday, I told you that Earls restaurant chain decided to abandon Albertan farmers and stop using Canadian beef in its restaurant chains. I asked you to join us in a boycott and sign a petition to show your support for Canadian farmers and now I want to bring you our first bit of good news.

Watch this video to see how much your voice matters and please remember to share this and the petition to encourage others to join us.

Go check out how Muslim countries slaughter beef or any other animals. I bet you would be shocked at how much better Canadian Slaughter house operate. Cleaner more Humane the list goes on and on. The Halal Certificate is just another way of funding ISIS, and being Politically Correct. We wouldn’t want to offend anyone, God Forbid!

Should be called Mohammed’s and should close. I( heard they moved to a plant that was halal, and the new boss is a "Mo.. My opinion only of course.I wouldn’t eat there.

Bill Elder commented: Bill,the irony of the greens buy locally BS is another one of their square peg and round hole dilemmas. Sun News reported several years ago about this issue. It was found in many instances that carbon footprints were much higher producing local products than bringing said products from half way around the world. I’m all for supporting local, but shouldn’t these leftist tools realize that the market place will sort these things out. If capitalism was allowed to function properly our ruin would not be so imminent. I have not heard how the leftist Hypocrisy sorts this inconvenience out.

DAVID—— YEAH ! THE MAD COWS OF ALBERTA. I like that ,I am going to use that one

It just occured to me that in Earl’s headlong dash to politically correct and millenial meme-friendly, they have broken one of the green religion’s commandments – while they are calling this a progrssive move to “humane beef” they are taking a huge dump on the 100 mile local produce diet demanded by the climate cult – remind them of their hypocrisy.

This is the cost of playing politics instead of running a business.

To all residents of Alberta,

You should consider switching from cattle ranching to pig farming.
This would ensure that your beautiful province would not be invaded by the Mongrol hordes of Syrian ragtops.
After all, “You don’t know what lonesome is until you get to herding pigs”
This however would not be a Trigglypufferian deterrent.

Hey Jay,
Just to point out the obvious here, there are no lobster or musscel farms in Alberta (it’s
A proven fact that neither can be raised in the tar sands . . . Simply too rich)
I hope you were being sarcastic!

commented 2016-05-01 02:59:12 -0400
Earl’s is an abomination. They do not serve Lobster or mussels. If you ask them about it they say that there are no Lobster or mussels in Saskatchewan.

Could they not import it from Alberta? This is worse than being a Muslim or a Jew. This is about ignorance! All about ignorance!

Boycott Earl’s. Impeach Obama. Fire the premier of Ontario. Boycott Tim Horton’s. Etc. Don’t you rebel staff ever get tired of your antics? Maybe it will all stop when Ezra gets his ass kicked when he hands in that petition to the Turkish consulate.

Wouldn’t buying the beef cost more from the new Kansas suppliers with the exchange rate on our Canadian $. Wouldn’t that cost have to be passed on to Earls Canadian customers. Reality is the people who run Earls are scapegoating the best beef farmers in the world for Islamic Halal. Anyone who might question this opinion only has to watch the very available online footage of any Halal slaughter house and they would be sickened. And no amount of political dimitude will stop the dry heaves.

Tried to leave a post at the Grande Prairie Earls. Funny, the online contact is no longer. Go figure. Kegs or Mr Mikes it is from now on when I’m in town, and I USED to prefer Earls.
commented 2016-04-30 18:06:34 -0400
I had a conversation with a beef farmer from Saskatchewan a few months ago. I commented that Canadian beef farmers must be doing well. Considering the US exchange rate I was certain they were buying loads of Canadian beef and other products. I’m not a farmer so I don’t know exactly what the process is. But he told me while my observation would normally be correct the US has quit buying from Canada and Canadian market beef is going back and forth between the east and west. At that time he said that even the marketing board didn’t understand what was happening but he had the feeling there was a move to debilitate Canada. Oil, beef, energy….
Just thought I would add my 2 cents.

I really can’t figure out why CBC ‘Content disabled’ my comment:

“Not surprised the CBC ‘neglected’ to mention the CEO of Earls is a Moslem and that the new source for their beef, Creekstone Farms out of Kansas, is Halal certified!
How does it feel to lose your country?”

On this story: ‘Earls switch to U.S. meat ’a slap in the face,’ Alberta Beef Producers boss says’

I’m surprised there was even comments allowed, mostly there isn’t these days.
I guess there really is a Black List at CBC
I guess CBC has enough of our money that my voice doesn’t matter…
commented 2016-04-30 17:43:50 -0400
Someone has challenged the CEO to show some balls and leave the comments up.

Asking him if he is a man or a mouse.

I will be curious to see if there is a response.

So far it would seem he is a cowardly islamic ceo.

Probably not used to having people stand up to him.

I went out for lunch today, had the AAA Alberta steak sandwich, fries and salad. The steak was excellent, unfortunately I found out that the ketchup came from Ohio and the salad dressing was also an American product so of course I flew into a massive hissy-fit and trashed the place.
Man, this SJW stuff is tougher than I thought…
commented 2016-04-30 15:31:57 -0400
Most of our Ranchers do humanely raise their Cattle, and it is the law that the cattle cannot enter the food chain until all hormones and antibiotics etc. have cleared their system. Instead of forcing the Ranchers to pay a ransom to some NPO why don’t they do their own inspections at their own expense?
commented 2016-04-30 14:05:16 -0400
Richard Man posted: I wish I had a business you could come and do business with. A man with conviction and an actual functioning brain. Rare species in Alberta these days. Unfortunately I dont even have a job anymore, with the help of the NDP. As for Earls brilliant leftist approach, I think the backlash will give them Alberta food for thought. As a side note I checked on line to see the state of mad cow disease in Alberta and up popped a picture of Notley, Hoffman and Phillips. Just sayin.

Too expensive for my meagre budget in any case, soon to become thinner as Trudope and the Liebranos break more promises and raise taxes……………

Some people are FINALLY starting to wake up. I have always been a strong advocate of supporting those who support me. By that I mean if I decide to go to Edmonton, Calgary or whatever Alberta city and do what ever business, I always try to deal with those that do NOT vote for the left. It’s not hard to find out what peoples political views because all I do is make a quick comment regarding our premier or prime minister no matter who is in that position whether is was Harper, Trudeau, Notley or Redford. You can read a persons face if they don’t give a comment and you know what their political stance is. When a waiter or waitress serves me at a restaurant I make a comment again and if they are a leftie they get ZERO tip from me and I tell them why too. Shortly after the provincial election I had a contractor come into my office that admitted to voting for the NDP, I told him he will never work for me again and he hasn’t because I have no room for those who don’t want to support my industry. I have no use for the progressive left and they do NOT deserve a single penny of my hard earned money especially those that voted NDP. As far as I’m concerned Earls, Joeys and the rest of their chain will NEVER see a penny from me as long as they do not support Alberta’s cattle industry. Just like those who voted NDP will never see a penny from me because I work in the patch and a vote for the NDP is a vote to shut my industry down.

“Mo” Jessa (Mohammed Jessa) is Earl’s CEO. He grew up in Calgary and started as a cook at Earls. Is he an orthodox Muslim? Dunno but odds are against it.

As for Earls and Halal beef – no they do not order it but their US supplier has a sideline doing halal certified beef. Jessa says that they went to the US because no Alberta source could supply their required volumes reliably – he said they would go back to an Alberta source if he found someone to supply their volumes.

So hey kids, let’s not use the stick before we try the carrot – call around to friends and find a supplier for Earls and then make them back their promise – hell with 2 major cargill plants consuming most of Alberta’s beef production in expoert sales, it may be hard to find a vlume source for Earls.

I still will not darken their doorstep until they get their house contract brewer (Central-city brewing in BC) to supply a craft beer with a name that offends emotionally autistic SJWs then tells them to go pound sand if they demand they change it. When I see “white privilege” pale ale on tap at Earls I may stop in for a pint.

Robert Raymond – you said – “(I’m talking about animals her and not Muslims)”

Actually – that is not a bad idea to include the rapefugee folks – but then again that would be politically incorrect – so I will hush my mouth.
commented 2016-04-30 10:33:02 -0400
In this new enlightened age, we should do away with some practices such as kosher and halal slaughtering of animals as well as circumcision and female genital mutilation except in cases where there is a health threat.
All slaughterhouses should be governed by a regulatory agency and no barbarous treatment of any animals should be permitted.
Kill them we must but make it fast and as painless as possible with the minimum of trauma.
(I’m talking about animals her and not Muslims)
So where are PETA and the SPCA agencies on this?

commented 2016-04-30 09:52:44 -0400
So who’s organizing this boycott?

I went to the Alberta Beef Producer’s site….absolutely nothing there.
…went to the Alberta Cattle Feeder’s Association…nothing there
…nothing on the Canadian Cattleman’s Association…
…Alberta Federation of Agriculture…dick-all…

Now, I may have missed a couple of orgs, but it’s starting to look like the folks that probably have the most to lose in all of this just aren’t that concerned.

So, if this really was a big deal, you’d think that they would be up off their arses and saying and doing what needed to be said and done. But in the absence of that, I guess I’m just not very concerned. I don’t throw rocks for anyone who won’t come out and pitch along side me.
commented 2016-04-30 09:49:19 -0400
Bravo Zulu – I noticed that too! These people are being placed in positions where they can directly affect our food chain. It would be good if the Rebel did an in depth report on who is running these companies. I think if we know that, we will know which companies to boycott over these unfair and disgusting practices.
commented 2016-04-30 09:44:48 -0400
All halal fees paid to islamic organization becomes cash shipped off to support terror – it is untraceable.
commented 2016-04-30 09:28:46 -0400
Take a look at yogurt.

If it’s halal, it is less expensive than non-halal yogurt.
The question is why?
Again we are making it easier for the middle eastern rag tops and tent sales people to get ahead whilst the rest of Canadians pay through the nose.

commented 2016-04-30 09:28:07 -0400
Further to this Earl’s – the CEO is apparently islamic – lovely………………….ughhh
commented 2016-04-30 09:27:17 -0400
I have been told that all Earl’s Beef is halal – I will never darken their doors again
