not to mention the US stopped importing Canadian beef themselves...the border closure was a huge topic here in Alberta for a long time...but they still buy contaminated food from China and Mexico.

Quarantining something imported that might transmit an animal to human disease - now there is a novel concept! So, how is it that the U.S. is importing poultry products from China this year since there has been reported outbreaks of H5N1 bird flu in China this year? And how about why is the U.S. importing hog and pork products while there are reports of active outbreaks of blue ear hog virus (PRRSV) in China in 25 out of 33 provinces? Why aren't we delaying such imports until the outbreaks are verifiably gone? China saw ONE case of mad cow disease in a Canadian cow here in the U.S. in 2003 and ceased all U.S. beef imports into China FOR YEARS!
