NFU Leader Says Canadian Ag Minister Out Of Line On COOL Remarks

NFU Leader Says Canadian Ag Minister Out Of Line On COOL Remarks

Recent statements by Canadian Ag Minister Gerry Ritz that the U.S. Country of Origin Labeling law will hurt the North American Meat Industry is drawing a sharp response. National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says Ritz has no business lobbying Congress to get them to change or eliminate COOL.

Johnson says Ritz’s statement is already having an effect on conferees meeting to finalize a farm bill.

Johnson says not only is Canada losing the fight over COOL which is evident by these recent statements by their Ag Minister but also the fact they’ve taken it to court shows they are desperately trying to scuttle COOL.
