Canadian ag minister wants open beef trade

WASHINGTON - Canada's agriculture minister is urging the United States to ease trade restrictions put in place after mad cow disease was reported in Canada. Such a step could lead other countries to make their markets more accessible for beef from the United States and Canada, both of which had mad cow cases, and Mexico, Bob Speller suggested. "Why would people want to buy beef from North America if we are stopping each other's beef from crossing the border?" he said.
