No Canadian Beef?

[Media Source*]

(Posted on the Blogger News Network)

It seems that the Senate doesn't like it's northern neighbor's meat products. The President may share a different opinion though.
"I will now work with the U.S. House of Representatives to prevent passage of this resolution, which is strongly opposed by the Bush Administration, and continue our aggressive efforts to reopen international markets to U.S. beef." [U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns]

The Senate voted 52-46 to close down the border when it comes to Canadian Cows, which is in part due to the mad cow disease found in one of their meat products earlier. I preferably don't care where my meat comes from, as long as it's not contaminated with "evil" stuff, which might be a problem with our northern friends.

It seems though that Johanns is pushing for Canadian beef back into the American market place, something I would not appreciate until further investigations are made. Judge Richard Cebull seems to have his head on his shoulders though, and is the one who originally placed an injunction of cows under 30 months of age.
"Deference cannot be given to any agency that has made the decision to open the border before completing the necessary scientific analysis of risks to human health. The USDA cannot favour trade with Canada over human and animal health within the U.S." [Judge Cebull]

I agree. But if our concern for health must be sacrificed for trade, they should at least put little stickers on the beef packages that say "Made in Canada" so the average consumer can choose whether or not he wants to risk mad cow disease. Selah.
