New campaign urges the federal government to defend Canada’s meat standards

Cattle and meat groups are asking Members of Parliament to defend Canada’s scientific standard when it comes to allowing the United Kingdon into the Comprehensive Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

The U.K. does not recognize the safety of Canada’s meat processing and food production systems so British authorities will not permit imports of Canadian beef or pork.

The Canadian Cattle Association, Canadian Meat Council, and National Cattle Feeders’ Association launched “Say No to A Bad Deal” campaign to stand up for science-based trade standards.

In July, the federal government announced the UK was accepted into CPTPP. However, the meat groups want the move delayed until a deal can be negotiated between the two countries regarding treatment of Canadian meat products.
