to Rev: is every animal being tested now in Ca? If need be ......to prevent this.....then one should hope so.
Until other countries allow your beef to be imported, I see no reason why you pick on the US. Yeah we are the largest importer of your beef, well no **** sherlock, what else is new.
And if I am not mistaken, although I could be wrong, I would have to look it up. This dispute has been brought up by Canada at the WTO and lost, on three separate occassions, or was it NAFTA, I forget. And still you talk about it.
Your claims that it may damage trade are also not solid. When you go to Japan and try to make your case that you are doing enough testing and that your beef is safe according to science, they just say, "Then why aren't you accepting Canadian beef? They do even more than you do." You have undermined your own credibility in the international trade community.
