A 4-H member from Kincardine will represent Canada at a beef showing competition in the United Kingdom.

Bailey McConnell joins Alexa Avelar of East Garafraxa and Megan Foubert of Kemptville at the Young Show Stars competition in late March.

All three were champion show people at the Royal Winter Fair in November.

Afterwards, the top three in the U-K showing will travel to Toronto to compete at the National Beef Heifer Show.


A court has approved a 4-million dollar settlement of a class-action lawsuit filed after an E. coli outbreak that sparked the largest meat recall in Canadian history.

The lawsuit was against XL Foods -- which operated a meat-packing plant in southern Alberta during the tainted beef recall in the fall of 2012.

People who became sick after eating the beef or people who purchased the beef can apply for compensation before August 17th.

Under the agreement -- XL Foods does not accept any wrongdoing or liability.

More than 1.8 million kilos of beef was recalled in Canada and the U-S.
