CCA Supports COOL Challenge

Calgary, AB – Representatives of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA), led by President Travis Toews, attended the second round of oral hearings examining whether the United States Country of Origin Labelling (COOL) law violates the World Trade Organization (WTO) agreements. Held in Geneva, Switzerland on December 1 & 2, this second and final oral hearing is, for Canada, the culmination of more than two years of work compiling and documenting the negative impacts of COOL on the Canadian cattle industry.

The CCA congratulates the Government of Canada and its outstanding legal team for the strong presentation it made to the WTO dispute settlement panel.
