Alta. sounds COOL alarm

The Alberta government says there are reports that some members of the U.S. House of Representatives want to include mandatory country-of-origin labelling in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

“The members of Congress pushing this need to realize it isn’t something industry in Canada or the U.S. want to revisit,” said Alberta Agriculture Minister Devin Dreeshen.

“It isn’t consistent with American trade obligations, and it isn’t good for farmers in either country who want a fair and predictable trade relationship.”
