Statement made on 31 March 2010 by Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette

Hon. Céline Hervieux-Payette:

Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. On November 2, 2009, the Government of Canada lodged an official complaint with the World Trade Organization to challenge the European boycott of seal products.

The first phase of the process required consultations with the European Union. If, after 60 days, no agreement had been reached, Canada could then request that a special group be formed to review the complaint.

Could the leader tell us the nature of those consultations between Ottawa and Brussels and what conclusions were reached? Since the 60 days have passed, has Canada asked that a special group be formed?
