Beijing had blocked deliveries of Canadian meat in June over a batch of pork containing ractopamine, a feed additive banned in China, which was accompanied by fraudulent pork export certificates. Canada’s International Trade Diversification Minister Jim Carr has disputed that the pork was Canadian. In a tweet, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau credited Dominic Barton, Canada’s ambassador to China, with a role in ending the ban. (The Logic, Global News)
