Canadian View of COOL - Ready to Make Retaliation Against U.S. Hurt

Wed, 20 May 2015 18:30:47 CDT

Canadian View of COOL - Ready to Make Retaliation Against U.S. Hurt The United States and Canada are natural partners in agriculture. Thanks to our shared standards and the successful integration of our supply chains we trade 50 Billion dollars bilaterally in food and agricultural commodities each year. Mandatory Country of Origin Labeling - or COOL - has disrupted U.S. supply chains leading to significant costs and inefficiencies. The World Trade Organization has - in multiple rulings - found mandatory COOL to violate the international trade obligations of the U.S. Following the final U.S. appeal, Canada will soon be authorized to retaliate against U.S. commodities. Find out more by referencing our one page (PDF) which highlights how COOL negatively impacts both Canada and the U.S., and find out more how your stateís economy is supported by agricultural trade with Canada and could be impacted by possible retaliation. Letís support jobs, families and communities by fixing COOL.

Canada is Oklahoma's third largest export market. Retaliation would target $21 million of Oklahoma's exports. Click here to read the full report for Oklahoma.
