What are butchers allowed to sell when you buy a whole/half cow (in quebec)?

I'm buying a cow and splitting it with a friend.
We just heard back from the slaughter house that the farm uses, and they told us that they aren't allowed to sell the tongue, the pancreas, the spleen, the feet, and a number of other things.

Can anyone tell me exactly what act or regulation specifies this and/or exactly what is specified?
I can't find anything myself which supports what they said, is it possible they are just saying that because people don't know better and that leaves them more things which usually go out in bulk orders or for more money?
