Free pork

Despite the cold wind and the potential rain/snow, I decided to trudge over to the Legislature for a free pulled pork sandwich, courtesy of the Alberta pork industry.

There was a surprisingly long line. And they ran out of food, but they quickly had more delivered. I arrived late enough to miss the speeches (on purpose), but they were still promoting pork by sticking Canadian pork – porc Canadien stickers on people’s jackets and handing out recipe books. I would have preferred free pork chops, but I guess we all can’t get what we want. A free sandwich and a drink is still a pretty good freebie.

The pulled pork was catered by the Sawmill and was doused with a basic bbq sauce.

And just to be clear, people are catching H1N1 (a.k.a. the swine flu) from other people, not from eating pork. Just ’cause it has “swine” in the name  doesn’t mean it comes from pigs.

    • It was a very brief and small amount of snow that melted as soon as it hit the ground. And no, not normal but we’ve been having a chilly spring so far.

      It has snowed once or twice in April before but usually by end of March the snow stops.

      The summers are warm, I promise! You’ll love the festivals.

  1. I’m still eating pork too. It’s one of my favourite meats, so I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to give it up even if I wanted to!
