Canada to EU re: seal trade ban: “Oh no you didn’t.”

In a letter to EU Ambassador Eckart Guth, Ottawa said it believed the ban on sales of all products from seals, including fur, meat and oil, were inconsistent with international trade rules and should be repealed.

“These measures appear to be inconsistent with the (EU’s) obligations,” Canadian envoy Bruce Christie wrote, citing potential breaches of several trade regulations. “These violations appear to nullify or impair the benefits accruing to Canada under those agreements.”
