Monday, Oct. 8, is the Canadian Thanksgiving. Recognizing an opportunity. the savvy University of British Columbia Media Relations staff sent out a news release featuring Nathan Pelletier, ecological economist at the univeristy's Okanagan campus and the first-ever Egg Farmers of Canada Industrial Research Chair in Sustainability.

In the release, Pelletier explains why we don't eat turkey eggs  (primarily grower profitability, he says) and also gives his insights into chicken eggs. 

It's a quick, fun read, especially if you enjoy ag and economics. If you have a few minutes during this busy harvest season, take a look at the  release .

To our Canadian friends and allies: Enjoy your holiday.
